Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival
Most productions throughout the academic year are entered in the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KCACTF). Participation in this national organization provides students with feedback on their production work from theatre educators from across the Northwest region and the nation.
Based on that work selected student actors and designers qualify for regional competitions which, in turn, may earn them a spot in the national KCACTF competition. The Irene Ryan Acting Competition requires nomination at the institutional level by the production director and/or respondent.
Design students may compete regionally in several areas and at various levels. For a complete background and the details of KCACTF and its many activities please visit www.kcactf.org.
