Acting UP is a non profit organization committed to providing a positive arts experience for children to adults through performances, educational opportunities and through the exploration of different facets of the arts. As a result, we hope to inspire, educate and give back to our local community and the surrounding areas. We believe that all people are creative and the arts provide opportunities to grow in a positive way!


We are a group of homeschool moms who love theater! Our backgrounds include childhood development, dance, choreography, graphic design, costume design, prop design, set design, stage acting, writing, and directing. Acting Up started in 2005 in Arizona then made its way to North Carolina in the spring of 2014. Now having 20+ shows under our belt, and 5 years of theater education classes, we are excited about what the future holds. We are so thankful that you share your children and families with us and are amazed by those who encourage us, and volunteer with their unique talents. Thank you so much for your support. We could not do it without you!

Dear Acting Up Families, Thank you for supporting your child’s participation in ACTING UP THEATER. We are busy gearing up for upcoming shows, summer camps, and a new semester of AET, but I wanted to take a moment to highlight some of the countless benefits of theater with students.
