Next Steps

What is Next Steps?

Next Steps is a new initiative designed to help our students take the “next step” in their theatrical and/or educational journey. Maybe you are thinking about switching from one area of theatre to another. Or, maybe you plan to transfer from a two-year school to a four-year school, or one four-year school to another. Perhaps you’re almost done with undergrad and are considering either graduate programs or are ready to tackle the “real world”. Or maybe you just have no idea what to do next and you need some direction. Whatever your “next step” may be, we here at KCACTF Region 4 want to help you succeed. Our whole purpose is to provide you with resources for job hunting and career options, auditions, interviews, and networking to better prepare you to become a theatre professional.

As you make plans to come the festival, look for our workshops on resume/portfolio building, audition/interview tips and techniques, and the school application process. If you plan to attend SETC, bring your audition/portfolio materials and we’ll hold mock auditions and interviews.  Look for panel discussions about what to expect and what you should do as a transfer student so that you don’t get lost in the shuffle at your new school.

And Faculty, these sessions are for you as well. Come discover and share ideas on how to help your students take the “Next Step”.
