A Brief history
In January of 2000, at the request of the Davie Town Council, an ad appeared in the Town's local paper asking if there are, "Any thespians out there?" A number of people responded and became the nucleus for the Town's first community theatre.
A core group of eight men and women began rehearsing scenes from internationally famous plays, with the intent of eventually putting on a performance. Soon, two other dedicated players joined the group an began helping with the planned show.
On October 20 and 21, 2000, the preproduction of "An evening of Scenes: The Passion of Tennessee Williams, The Laughter of Neil Simon" was presented at Robbin's Lodge before an appreciative audience. After this initial venture, a board of governors was elected. Thus the birth of the Actors Community Theatre of Davie.

Bus Stop takes place inside a street corner restaurant in a small Kansas town about thirty miles west of Kansas City. Due to icy conditions, an interstate bus is forced to stop for the night. One by one, the bus passengers are introduced, each with their own quirks and conflicts. William Inge's comedy is filled with sentimental characters and a pleasant, slice-of-life storyline.

A single Jewish woman longs to be a part of the intellectural literary scene. She is, however, tethered to her roots on the Lower East Side, where her old-fashioned grandmother is forever trying to fix her up. She has her eye on a handsome brooding author, but her grandmother enlists the help of a local matchmaker to fix her up with a quiet Jewish man who runs a pickle stand in the neighborhood. Soon she must decide what it is she really wants out of life and what love really means to her.

The Shadow Box takes place in cottages on the grounds of what, at the time of the play's debut, is described as a hospital; in practice, we would probably refer to it today as a hospice facility. The play focuses on three patients and their interactions with the families. "By far the finest play of the New York season, a beautifully relized drama of sensitive perceptions ofter as funny as it is moving...." Washington Post. Winner of the 1977 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play.
