Heading home

KCACTF (Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival) has ended, and we're headed back to San Diego.

Although McKenna and Lizette did not progress out of the preliminary round in the Irene Ryan Competition, they all had a great experience. The students saw plays, attended workshops and panel discussions, and apparently there was karaoke involved. 



City College will be participating in KCACTF next year (at Fullerton, CA), and we look forward to greater involvement in this program. To learn more, go here.

There is no rehearsal on Friday before Easter weekend.

It is possible to perform in the One Act Festival AND Six Characters

I am looking for 5 or 6 actors from City College.

To be clear, the title of the play will change as the play is an adaptation-
Lily Padilla an up and coming nationally recognized playwright is writing the adaptation.
(Look her up! She is amazing!)

When the script is available, I will send out sides for you to read.

As we stated at the audition-  Actors will need to find transportation to USD.  HOWEVER, I will be active in ensuring that actors can get to rehearsal and home.
