Region 8 of the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival is comprised of universities, state colleges, and community colleges in Arizona, Central and Southern California, Hawaii, Southern Nevada, Utah and Guam.

About the Festival:

Each year, KCACTF Region 8 brings students and faculty together in February to see one another’s work and to share ideas. In addition to performances, there are a wide range of activities that in the past have included workshops and seminars on such topics as playwriting, auditioning, voice, movement, stage combat, theater for children, scene painting, scenery construction, and so on. There are sessions for everyone, from beginning theater artists to experienced faculty members. In addition to competing in the Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship audition, our actors will have an opportunity to avail themselves of these workshops, symposia, and exhibits that are part of this regional festival.

We congratulate the entire cast and crew of THE GREAT GOD PAN, and we congratulate Matthew, Carolyn, and Marisa on their nominations; we are proud of their accomplishments and their collaborative spirit, and we wish them the very best at KCACTF 2020!
