Owner description: 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

This was my first time visiting the theater and I was very impressed. The production was wonderful and well acted upon. It kept me wanting more. Each actor really put there all into this production.

We were wowed last evening after visiting this theater in the former Columbus school. "Let's Kill Marsha" was the title of the play. There were a total of 7 performers and they did a "bang up" job. The entire experience was great from beginning to end. The tickets are very reasonable, seating comfortable and there is not a bad seat... More

My husband and i have seen several performances by this group. They are really good and we enjoy the fact that they use very few props. Their sets are simple and it all lets their acting shine through. Bravo!

An alternative to the "typical" theater/playhouse productions in Erie, All-An-Act Theatre venue is warm, historical and never disappoints. You can't beat the price (which includes donation beneficial to the needy of Erie); QUIET snacks are available for purchase; seats are comfortable; whether mystery or comedy, the talent is spectacular; and just as important, the clientele is considerate! Never a problem... More

What a gem we have in All AnAct Theatre. A great value for the money and great productions. Do not like British plays as have a hard time understanding the dialogue. The actors seem to have a hard time playing English parts with the English accents. perhaps it is my hearing problem. In any event, I do not plan to... More
