N.C. Theatre Conference High School Regional Play Festival to Be Held at Catawba College

October 27, 2009

Category: Events, Theatre Arts


This Friday and Saturday, October 30 and 31, the Catawba College Theatre Arts Department hosts the North Carolina Theatre Conference High School Regional Play Festival in Keppel Auditorium. The Festival is free and open to the public.

Come for one performance or come for all of them! The Festival showcases 300 young theatre artists from central N.C. high schools. Each production has 45 minutes to: assemble the world of their play on our stage, share their performance, and remove everything from the space, leaving it spotless for the next production. An adjudicator then offers a 10-minute public oral response to the work. Those who want to witness the full process, should arrive by five minutes until the hour. A full performance schedule follows:
