Musical Theatre

The Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival Region 1 is pleased to offer Musical Theatre as an official area of festival programming. Although we are still in virtual mode for the 2022 Festival, rest assured that we will provide the same professionally intensive programming as we have in past festivals!

The Music Theatre Area celebrates the art form by offering workshops and scholarship opportunities for students nominated for Region 1 productions, as well as all students attending the Region 1 festival.
