Dramatic Pauses…for Good Causes

Dramatic Pauses... for Good Causes is our annual staged reading festival where all proceeds and donations go entirely to charity. When we first started The 6th Act, one of our founding principles was to ensure we dedicated ourselves to community outreach and charity work, and this festival is one of the many ways we hope to fulfill that commitment.

 
 


Our first annual "Dramatic Pauses... for Good Causes" was an enormous success, as we were able to raise a substantial amount of money for incredibly wonderful charities, and experience some unforgettable theatre with truly sensational artists. Here was the festival schedule and artists:
