About the Kennedy Center - American College Theater Festival

The Theatre Arts Department participates in the annual Kennedy Center - American College Theater Festival by entering its productions to compete regionally and nation-wide against productions from other colleges and universities. Several students are nominated and participate in the Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship Competition each year. Our Technical Theatre students compete in different Technical categories like Stage Management, Set Design, Make-Up Design, Lighting Design, and Costume Design. Our Acting and Technical Theatre students continue to win or advance in various categories.

We have had great success with our productions being selected and performed at the Festival. Recently selected productions include Cesar and Ruben, Heart Mountain, M. Courage, Quartet: 4 Short Plays by Samuel Beckett.
