Attraction details
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

It's somewhat rare to find quality live theatre in a mid-sized town, but All an Act's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest still gives me chills. Casual dress in a homey auditorum make it not quite the Globe but still fun to be a groundling.

We were here on business and think this local theater company is amazing! We saw a 2-man show called "Rounding Third" - these guys obviously loved what they do.

We called La Bella Restaurant and asked for a "the theater/dinner combo." This resulted in a 15% discount on dinner and 20% discount for the show at All an Act.

AND, $1 of each ticket benefits a local charity.

Worth twice the money!! Be sure to go.

We are so fortunate that you picked us, out of all the other venues, while you stayed in Erie. So many people love our dinner & show package with La bella restaurant! Thanks for taking the time to comment and rate us, and we hope you visit us again the next time you are in Erie!
