Take a trip through 5 decades of theatre and get a taste of Commonwealth Theatre Center’s enormous contribution to 40+ years of excellence in theatre education and performance in Louisville and beyond.

Performances will feature special short pieces by accomplished Walden Theatre Conservatory alumni including CTC Artistic Director Charlie Sexton plus Donald Kimmel, Maggie Mudd, Lethia Nall, Emily Albrink, John Austin Clark, Neill Robertson, and Becca Willenbrink.

Dress for the decade of your teen years (contest alert!), buy into a balloon pop raffle (they’re all winners!), shake things up to the music that never stopped moving you, and eat/drink your way through a finely crafted night of ACTING UP!

Admission includes two drinks plus delicious food from these favorites:
Feast BBQ, Mayan Café, Wiltshire Pantry, Sweets by Millie, and more.

UPDATED: The music!
Announcing two great musical acts for the Acting Up party!
Carly Johnson is a widely talented jazz singer who dips into soul and rock, recently inked a record contract, AND has a Heart tribute band (and she’s also one of our alumni!). Then we’ll launch into Wax Factory, with an energetic cover repertoire ranging from Kool and the Gang to Madonna to No Doubt to Bruno Mars.

Can’t make it for the fun? You can still contribute!

Donations on our crowdfunding page support financial aid that puts CTC’s world-class programs within reach of more families!
