A Brief NAC History
The Neighborhood Acting Company (NAC) began in the late 1970’s with a few teachers from Wayne Central. NAC started as a way for teachers to get together and perform skits for each other, their students and their neighbors. The Wayne Central PTA was also involved in the productions.
Marian Wulfert, Nancy Jordan, and Michael Grow organized and incorporated the Neighborhood Acting Company in 1978. Shows were performed from the early 1970’s through 1983, when the group phased out for a few years. In 1991, the group reformed with Marian Wulfert at the helm. NAC drew up a charter, wrote by-laws and applied for non-profit status. It gained 501C-3 status in 2014 with the sole purpose of providing scholarships* for graduating seniors who participated in the shows in a variety of capacities: both onstage and behind the scenes.
