Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival
Sam Houston State University's Theatre Department has participated in Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival since 2001. It has been a rewarding experience resulting in much growth for the students and faculty involved.
KCACTF offers exciting opportunities for the Department to develop the Theatre and Musical Theatre programs. Students are given an opportunity to meet students from all over the U.S. and well known theatre professionals.
In January and February of each year, regional festivals showcase the finest of each region's participating productions and offer a variety of workshops, symposia, and regional-level award programs. Four to six of the best and most diverse regional festival productions are selected by the National Selection Committee to be showcased in the spring at the annual non-competitive national festival at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., all expenses paid.
