American Conservatory Theater
stablished in 1965, American Conservatory Theater is a Tony Award–winning theater and training institution whose work is energized and informed by a profound commitment to developing the next generation of theater artists.
A.C.T. is the largest theater company in the San Francisco Bay Area and employs more than 800 people each season, from teachers and artists to technicians and administrative staff. During the past four decades, more than 300 A.C.T. productions have been seen by close to 7 million playgoers in the company’s magnificent Beaux Arts–style theater located in the heart of San Francisco’s Union Square theater district.
Located in the heart of Union Square, A.C.T.’s conservatory boasts 10 studios and a black box studio theater, and shares its rehearsal spaces with A.C.T.’s mainstage productions.
Classrooms, studios, and administrative offices are fully integrated— student life is an integral part of A.C.T.’s life—and students have the opportunity to interact daily with company actors and staff. A few blocks away is A.C.T.’s historic and dazzling theater—one of San Francisco’s famed cultural landmarks.
In addition, Zeum Theater, at Yerba Buena Gardens, is A.C.T.’s additional stage for readings, workshops, rehearsals, and other aspects of new play and production development. Nearby, students can explore the theater district, museums, parks, Chinatown, North Beach, and the Embarcadero waterfront.
