Spooked at the Strand, the annual Halloween costume party at San Francisco's American Conservatory Theater, raised more than $130,000 for the organization's actor training program.

"We are touched and thrilled by the enthusiasm of our donors, who helped us raise the funds needed to support A.C.T.'s acclaimed actor training program," said event chairs Holly and Chris Hollenbeck. "Because of their generosity — and the dedication of the talented M.F.A. Program student performers — A.C.T.'s Conservatory remains in the forefront of arts education programs in the country."

American Conservatory Theater is a Tony Award-winning theater and educational institution dedicated to nurturing the art of live theater through dynamic productions, intensive actor training in its Conservatory, and an ongoing engagement with its community. Carey Perloff serves as artistic director of the company.
