Open Door Theater is located in Acton, Massachusetts, where we produce one large-scale (usually musical) theatrical show every year. Our cast size can be as high as 100 people, and our crew as large if not larger. Our organization is about bringing together a community of theater people who want to have fun and enjoy each other as we rehearse and perform.
We are a 501(c)(3) volunteer organization whose theater productions depend upon family involvement both on-stage and off-stage. Our casts and crews draw adults and children from around the Acton area: Concord, Boxboro, Littleton, Carlisle, Chelmsford, Maynard, Westford, Sudbury, etc.
Open Door Philosophy
Open Door Theater of Acton is a non-profit, family-oriented, accessible community theater company that has been creating learning experiences through theater for adults, children, and people with disabilities since it was founded in 1980. The Open Door philosophy is that when you offer a positive theater experience, with this mix of people, they learn a lot about themselves and how to get along with each other.
Open Door Theater values and includes people of all nationalities, socioeconomic backgrounds, abilities, races, genders, religions, and sexual orientations in everything we do on stage and off. We welcome the unique insights, perspectives and feedback of all our participants to fulfill our mission and believe that the more diverse our community, the more learning opportunities created.
We envision and embrace a diverse community which enables access to theater for all on both sides of the curtain through mentorship and communal problem solving. We strive to create a family environment in which cast and crew can reach their goals and we share our experiences and expertise with other organizations so that we can all become more inclusive and accessible.
Universal Programming and Design
Open Door Theater is proud to be one of the charter members of the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s UP initiative for Universal Programming and Universal Design to increase the accessibility of all organizations in Massachusetts and beyond.
