What is aactWorldFest?

A world-wide week-long community theatre festival in Venice, Florida, USA on Florida’s beautiful southwest coast.

“Plan to attend the AACT WorldFest that will be held at Venice Theatre in 2018. I want more people who claim to love the theater and be “in the know” about what’s trendy in the arts to experience this event.” ~ Jay Handelman, Herald-Tribune (read more)


Delight in performances from top-quality theatre troupes from around the globe. Many perform in their native language, but it’s easy to follow what’s happening  because the language of theatre is universal!

The first two countries have been chosen for the 2018 festival: Italy and Zimbabwe. Click here to learn more!


Expect a variety of learning experiences involving a variety of theatre forms. At past festivals participants learned about Chinese opera, commedia dell’ arte,  multi-media influences on modern theatre, and more. Stay tuned for our 2018 workshop schedule.


Delightful dinners, after-glow gatherings, impromptu drum circles, and “lobby gabs” make up the recipe for life-long, global friendships!
