Daniel C. Levine – Artistic Director
A Contemporary Theatre (ACT) of Connecticut will take over the famous Schlumberger auditorium adding to the community’s anticipated cultural center that will span 30 acres of the former Schlumberger property. Produced and led by two accomplished theater professionals, this contemporary theater is likely to be the regional theater destination theatergoers choose. ACT will present limited engagement runs of well-known Broadway plays and musicals, as well as world premiere plays and musicals by the next generation of writers and composers. The theater company is expected to produce four shows per year, with each show including Broadway professionals and Ridgefield’s professional actors and actresses. In addition to fully produced, main stage productions, the producers will launch youth education classes, camps, workshops, and a conservatory program for high school students.
