TNT Quad AACTFests

It's the Best Little Theatre Competition in Texas - Texas AACTFest!
For the 2017 cycle, eleven companies will vie for the opportunity to represent Texas at the Region VI AACTFest in Lafayette, Louisiana in April, with the ultimate goal of advancing to the National AACTFest in Rochester, Minnesota in June. The Quad Festivals kick off the process in January and February - so come on out and enjoy the delightful variety of performances as the companies polish their entries. For locations, schedules and prices, see below.
