About New Ulm Actors Community Theatre

We were formed as the Pioneer Players in 1978, so New Ulm has enjoyed a continuous run of community Theatre since then.

New Ulm Actors Community Theatre was reformed in 2001 and is proud to serve the area through its productions. Involving the talents of our youngest workshop and summer camp performers through senior members of the community, NUACT offers a springboard for participants and audience alike.

Anyone can participate – from taking tickets, constructing sets, to acting on stage. There is something for everyone besides just the “old song and dance.” From radio theatre to Oktoberfest parades, from forgetful nuns to Jane Austen, and from straight lines to harmonizing, NUACT brings to its family audience a varied array of classics, plays, musicals, murder mysteries, holiday shows, workshops, classes and side-splitting comedies.

Please join us! Send an e-mail to execdir@newulmact.com or call us at (507) 359-9990 just to say hello.
