About us

Founded in September 2009

Get in the Act's non-profit work is a natural outgrowth of our successful ten years of creative arts programming in the underserved communities of the Northern Sierra Nevada region. By partnering with schools and community centers we have served over 15,000 students, parents, and audience participants with programs that educate and entertain.
