College Theatre Festival

KCACTF Louisiana Festival

The Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KCACTF) provides our students with great opportunities at the state and regional level. A regional festival is held each year bringing together schools from the states of Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. The festival opens many doors for our students to take master classes, network and interview for graduate schools. At the regional festival each school competes for a chance to be considered for the national festival in the spring at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.
