The Augustana Theatre Company showcases student talent in a variety of theatrical productions each year — one of which is always a musical. Brand Name Improv (BNi) is a student-led improvisation company performing regularly on campus and in the community. Augustana Collaborative Theatrical Society (ACTS) is a student production company producing a three-show independent season in the Mary Harum Hart Actor's Studio.
The theatre in the Edith Mortenson Center theatre seats 286 people in a thrust stage configuration. The building’s renovated facilities also include the Mary Harum Hart Actor’s Studio, a black box rehearsal and performance space.

ACTS (Augustana Collaborative Theatrical Society)
- Expand Opportunities
ACTS is committed to providing diverse theatrical opportunities to the students of Augustana University. In collaboration with the the Augustana Theatre faculty, ACTS is able to produce three productions a year in the Mary Harum Hart Acting Studio in the Edith Mortenson Center. These productions are selected, produced, directed, designed, managed, and performed by Augustana students. ACTS aims to expose the community to the raw, social and artistic elements of theatre by producing works that are seldom produced in a main stage environment. All of ACTS productions are free to the public. You can learn more about ACTS through their Facebook page or Twitter (@aboutACTS).
All of ACTS' productions are free to the public.
