About Us

logoThe Pioneer Players were incorporated in 1978 after many years of informal theatre productions dating back to the founding of New Ulm. A group of citizens reformed the group in 2001 as the New Ulm Actors Community Theatre (NUACT). The not-for-profit group, as an IRS 501(c)(3), operates a season of plays and activities centered around the historic 900-seat “State Street Theatre” on the corner of State and Center Streets, and a recently-opened 100-seat “Off Broadway Studio” downstairs in a former band room.

All ages are welcome, from our youngest workshop and summer camp performers through senior community members. Anyone can participate–from taking tickets, constructing sets, to acting on stage. From full scale musicals to radio theatre, from Oktoberfest parades to forgetful nuns, Jane Austen, and from straight lines to harmonizing, NUACT brings a variety of musicals, murder mysteries, holiday shows, workshops, comedies, and classes to its regional audience.

Please join us! Send an e-mail to execdir@newulmact.com or call us at (507) 359-9990 just to say hello. For a recent video, see “Something Artsy Summer Edition 2014″ below.

Mission Statement
