Founded in 2003 by Amy Waguespack, Acting Up (in Acadiana) is the resident theatre company at the Acadiana Center for the Arts in Lafayette.

The 75-year-old company specializing in tubular fabrication and installation services to the oil and gas industry plans to offer shares of its stock to the public for the first time.
