SINGAPORE – Celebrating more than 10 years of creative productions, Artistes for Christian Theatre (ACT) drew the curtains on May 1, 2008 with a paraliturgy that gave thanks to God for his graces and blessings on the ministry over the years.
ACT was formed in 1995 by a group of young adults who wanted to bring God’s message of love and peace to others through the dramatic allure of theatrical productions. Their mission to dedicate their gifts to God, nurture their spiritual growth and create social awareness through collaboration and evangelisation called for the focus of their productions to be on the journey with one another, with Christ at the head.
Some of ACT’s productions include: Forgiving Eyes, Shoes of a Stranger, St Joan: Maid of God, and Lumeni.
In line with its mission of reaching out to the marginalised in our society, ACT has donated all its funds to the Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics (H.O.M.E). H.O.M.E seeks to develop research and education on the socio-economics of migration in Singapore; provide social integration services for emigrants and immigrants, and to provide humanitarian assistance for the effects of "crisis" migration.
Bridget Lew, founder President of H.O.M.E., said that she was grateful for the generous donation.
