About I-ACTFest

Join the Fun!  The I-ACTFest state theater festival is part of the AACTFest biennial festival cycle that occurs every two years on the odd year.  It’s an exciting process that starts with our state festival, followed by a regional festival, and culminates with the national festival.  Twelve productions that have advanced from their state festivals and through the ten respective regionals are featured at the national festival.  AACTFest involves community theatres in every corner of the country and on military bases in Europe.

Festivals occur on odd years and only I-ACT members are eligible.
