The lights are a little bit dimmer at ACT. It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our Founder and President, Arlene Wendt.
In 1975, Arlene had a dream of bringing theater of the highest quality to the people of Westchester. With just $1,000, husband Ernie by her side, and good friends, Gail Gash and Carol Kerner, ACT was born. Over the past 47 years, Arlene dedicated her life to the arts, having directed over 100 plays and receiving many awards in business and theatre. Her legacy will live on and ACT will continue to serve Arlene’s mission of fostering an innovative, creative, thriving theater community.
