We heard you and are working to have the majority of events held on the Upstate campus.  USC Upstate is also working on making the bus system and vans easier for festival attendees.

Registration will open sometime in November – we are changing our registration provider and will announce when registration is available.

  • Late Registration – starts at 12:01 am Jan 25th — $100.00
  • On Site Registration and payment — $110.00

Irene Ryans have a separate cut-off dates in order to schedule the auditions. They are Midnight, Jan. 18th YOU MUST COMPLETE BOTH RYAN AND FESTIVAL REGISTRATION BY THIS TIME. This deadline is strictly applied as we must be able to prepare the audition schedule in advance.

Please Note:

Individuals that plan to participate in specific events may need to complete an additional registration form for those events, such as the Irene Ryans and the DTM expo.  Participation in other programs such as Devised Theatre, or the Musical Theatre Initiative may require emails direct to the program coordinators.  Check the individual program pages (found on the left hand side of the page) for more information.  There are no additional fees for program participation.
