Community Theatre Winners Manual

Congratulations! You have earned the honor of representing your state as you advance to the Southeastern Theatre Conference’s 2019 Community Theatre Festival in Knoxville, TN.

The schedule will be a tight one. Load-ins, tech meetings, rehearsals, and performances will run from Wednesday afternoon through Saturday afternoon. A full schedule of these events will be available after state festivals determine the exact number of entries. Please be aware that rehearsal times may be shortened in order to accommodate our limited schedule.

This is an AACTFest year, and, as always, we will follow AACT guidelines, a copy of which may be downloaded here: We are available to answer any questions or to assist with any special issues your production might have.

You are in for an exciting experience! We look forward seeing you in Knoxville!
