Acacia Theatre Company is a Wisconsin-based professional theater company that integrates art and faith by presenting theatre from a Christian view. Acacia is a non-profit, interdenominational Christian ministry not affiliated with any particular denomination or church.

Acacia was founded in 1980 by several local theatre artists who shared a common desire to produce plays that would express the experiences and positive moral values important to us as members of the Christian faith; the name Acacia was chosen because the Acacia tree, as mentioned in Isaiah, is a symbol of stability and resilience, for its deep roots which help it survive and its wood, which was used to build the Ark of the Covenant. Beginning as a touring company, shows were taken to schools and churches all over Milwaukee; the touring aspect of the theatre continues to this day.

Acacia produces a season of four plays at a resident theatre, performs a special Christmas production each year and tours a repertoire of plays to various churches and community organizations.

Performances are at Concordia University's Todd Wehr Auditorium in Mequon, Wisconsin.
