What is AACTFest?

AACT’s theatre festivals are part of a multi-year process that culminates in a national festival, held in odd-numbered years. Community theatres from AACT’s 10 regions enter productions for adjudication and advancement from state to regional to national level. AACTFest is thus a celebration of theatre and a learning experience for those who take part.
