Acting Against Cancer is a nonprofit semi-professional theatre company that strives to produce excellent and affordable musical theatre programming and education in Louisville while working to change the lives of children touched by cancer through the arts.
The company has performed around Louisville with past shows including NEXT TO NORMAL, THE ADDAMS FAMILY, Green Day’s AMERICAN IDIOT (regional premiere), THE LAST FIVE YEARS, LEGALLY BLONDE, HEATHERS THE MUSICAL, TICK TICK…BOOM!, THE WEDDING SINGER, ROCK OF AGES (regional premiere), [TITLE OF SHOW], CARRIE THE MUSICAL, MAMMA MIA! and DOGFIGHT. As of 2014, the company now annually produces THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW every October.
In addition to the mainstage shows, Acting Against Cancer also conducts after school programs, which not only serve as creative outlets for children and an opportunity for musical theatre instruction but also allow children who are in some way touched by cancer to participate in the programs for free, exploring the healing power of the arts and the limitless potential of their own creativity.
