AACTFest’09 - Your Turn to Shine in Alexandria, LA

City Park Players is honored to host The Louisiana State AACTFest ’09 on February 27 and 28. AACTFest is an adjudicated theatre performance festival held as part of the American Association of Community Theatre festival cycle in Alexandria, LA this Friday and Saturday. The cycle includes state and regional festivals and culminates with a biennial National AACTFest. Eligible entries come from community theatres across Louisiana. Each entry will be publicly adjudicated by a three-judge panel. The winning entry will advance to the regional AACTFest held in Kerrville, Texas, in spring 2009. This event is supported in part by grants from the Roy O. Martin Foundation as administered by the Arts Council of Central Louisiana and GAEDA, the Greater Alexandria Economic Development Authority.
