Who We Are

With more than 50 combined years of regional and educational theatre experience under their belts, Christopher and Petra Karr officially launched ACT 1 Theatre Productions in 2008. They rented a tiny office in downtown Sumner, WA just a hop, skip and a jump from Heritage Park and the train tracks. During this initial phase, ACT 1 performed at the Puyallup Elks Lodge, The Old Cannery Furniture Warehouse (both inside and under the big tent) and, most often, in Heritage Park.

In 2011 ACT 1 acquired warehouse space in Sumner, converted it to a studio where we have created an intimate black box theatre experience.
 
In 2012, the theatre company was awarded 501(c)3 non-profit status by the IRS.
 
ACT 1 still takes its act on the road but, for the past 4 years, all of its major productions have been staged in the studio in Sumner. Our recent production of Fantasticks was staged both in the studio AND on the road at Wesley Homes in Des Moines.
