New England Regional Festival 2013
The winners have been posted. Go to the Festival Page for all the details
The Superintendent of the Chelmsford schools has mandated that the Performing Arts Center close at 5:00 PM on Saturday, February 23, 2013 due to the impending snow storm, necessitating that we start the festival at 9:00 AM instead of noon.
All four shows will be compressed into two sessions with a break for lunch, and we will follow a rolling schedule. The second session will start after a 45 minute lunch break. Our best estimate is that the second session will start at about noon...so please plan your arrival accordingly. Each session will still have an adjudication following the performances. The Awards program will occur after deliberations and must conclude at 5:00 PM.
The exact start times of each show cannot be determined, but each show is expected to take 1 1/2 hours including performance and setup/strike. Tickets for any two shows in the festival will also be for sale.
And please remember... You must be seated in the theatre before the start of each show. AACT rules prohibit late entry to the theatre.

EMACT is excited to roll out its new on-line forums, a way for all community theater members to interact on-line. Use the forums to post questions, announcements, suggestions on any sort of theater-related topic from audition notices to marketing tips to suggestions on how to pull off a tricky special effect. Nothing is out of bounds as long as its theater related.
