Thank you for your interest in participating in the dramaturgy programming for the 2023 KCACTF Festival.

 We offer three distinct tracks for students interested in Dramaturgy! Take a look below and then submit a Student Inquiry form by December 15th to ensure you meet deadlines and understand guidelines.

Track 1.  Ten-Minute Play Dramaturgy

Work alongside student directors and actors to bring to life a staged reading of a ten-minute play by a student playwright during the festival. Interested dramaturgs will be provided with links to the 6 ten-minute plays once they are selected (Dec. 2).

Dramaturgs who wish to be a dramaturg for a ten-minute play must submit their play preferences by December 30th, 2022 to be paired with a director and play. 

Track 2.  Submission of a Dramaturgical Project

Receive a response from an industry professional, eligible for the LMDA/KCACTF Student Dramaturgy Award and KCACTF Region 1 Dramaturgy Award.

Dramaturgs who wish to submit a dramaturgy project must submit their materials by January 16, 2023.

Details here.

Track 3.  Attend Dramaturgy Workshops

If you have an interest in dramaturgy, but don’t want to present or serve as a dramaturg, be sure to take advantage of the dramaturgy workshops available to you during the festival.

No matter which track you wish to explore, be sure to submit a Student Inquiry form by December 15th to receive full details on how to participate and guidelines for submitting your work – and of course, don’t forget to register for the Festival (check with your faculty member to see if they will be submitting registrations on your behalf).

Looking forward to seeing you at the Festival; don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have!
