Description: All An Act Productions, or A3, as we affectionately call it, is an Erie...
All An Act Productions, or A3, as we affectionately call it, is an Erie theatre troupe whose mission is to make quality theatre more accessible to the Greater Erie Community.We strive to expose more people to The Arts and continue the tradition of live Theatre in Erie.All An Act Productions was founded in 2004 by Larry Lewis (Managing Director) and David W. Mitchell (Artistic Director).The Arts should be accessible to everyone and live theatre is no exception. We endeavor to provide a venue where those who can’t regularly go and see Erie Theatre can, and those who already do can go more often.Our intimate space allows us the opportunity to bring you even more quality productions at an affordable price! Additionally, $1 of every admission is donated to Community Shelter Services and benefits Erie's Homeless.Here are some of the comments we received from our audiences:"I am honored to become a fan. Arsenic and Old Lace was fabulous. Looking forward to attending more shows." -Connie Iesue-Bucci "Why don't Erieians know about this wonderful production? I don't think I missed a single play last winter." -Elizabeth Cavette "Not Now Darling is hysterical, we all laughed harder than I think I ever have." - Patty LaFlamme Sample"GREAT SHOW !! SPENT AN ENJOYABLE EVENING WITH MY WIFE AND DAUGHTER AND SOME GREAT THEATRE - CONGRATS TO THE CAST ON THIS SOLD OUT SHOW !!!" - Robert Smerick"Taking great strides forward this year were All An Act Productions' Larry Lewis and David W. Mitchell. Their 2008 shows began and ended with proficiently performed farces by Ray Cooney. They also met the rigorous demands of Edward Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?", the challenge of their first musical "The Last 5 Years", high gravitas in "12 Angry Men", and geriatric warmth in "A Bench In The Sun". Audience growth bodes well for the future." Floyd Lawrence, Showcase Magazine. "...in the months I have been reviewing plays at A3 one thing I have noticed is that the team of Larry Lewis and David Mitchell has a magic that no other theatre has. They are all looking for it but they just miss it. I am not sure what it is, or how they do it, but the two of them are making the works performed at A3 some of the best, most enjoyable shows in town." - Rob Taylor, EriJams Magazine

Every year our daughter, Emily gifts us with season passes to AAA. Today as I made our reservation for the upcoming production of Inherit the Wind I felt compelled to add a "hats off" to Dave Mitchell and Larry Richards as well as the entire staff and crew, let alone the actors. The performances are always superb and educational as... More

All an Act has a treasure trove of talented, versatile actors and actresses. The intimacy of the theater makes you feel one with the production and allows you a close up of the performers' facial expressions and nuances that add to the richness of the experience. The schedule is an eclectic variety of shows including comedy, farce, drama, mystery and... More

My wife and I have been regular attendees at A3 for several years. We travel about 20 miles each way to get there, so it's not just the most convenient. They offer a great variety of genres - comedy, drama, whodunit, and in between. While they seem to tend toward comedy more than anything, when they do drama, it's intense.... More

The wife and I attended a couple of shows last year and this year were season ticket holders. The seating is comfortable and you don't feel crowded as you do at the other local theaters. Reasonable priced soft drinks and snacks are available. Convenient parking can come at a premium with a smallish lot and street parking.

I've seen two shows at All An Act, and while the community players were competent to somewhat compelling, and the sets thoughtful, the audience was unable to restrain themselves from noisily unwrapping and eating candy during the performance. This happened both times and was very distracting to the actors and audience alike. I recommend revisiting the decision to sell such... More
