KCACTF Region 4 Announcements – Nov 18, 2011


The National Critics Institute will now be called the Institute for Theatre Journalism and Advocacy. Click below to download a document that explains the rationale for the change. It’s very exciting and I hope you’ll get students from theatre and other disciplines involved!

I will be sending an email after the Thanksgiving break about when Festival 44 pre-registration will begin. Festival Pre-registration will be until January 24, 2012. During the pre-registration period, the fee will be $65/person. After January 24, Festival registration will occur on-site and will cost $75/person. This year, if you pay by credit card (Visa and MasterCard only) and you pre-register, your credit card payment will be processed immediately. This is a change from years past.

Please announce to your students that all Irene Ryan Nominees and all Design Nominees need to fill out their respective Information Sheets online by January 21, 2012. I will let everyone know when these forms will be available in the email to be sent after Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving!
