It takes a village to ensure that every associate and participating production entered in our regional festival receives a knowledgeable and supportive response from a faculty artist respondent. This important volunteer role is essential to our educational mission of training and empowering the future leadership of the American Theatre.
We ask that your department supply at least one respondent visit for every associate and participating production you entering the festival.
How to become a respondent
- Let your KCACTF state chair know your interested
- Attend a respondent training and observe a response (or two) with seasoned responders. Respondent workshops are offered annually at the Regional Festival. This fall we will release a new web-based orientation video to that will make the training more accessible across our region.
- Our state chairs coordinate scheduling of respondents for all Associate productions. Communication of production performance dates, times and locations is managed via email. Please contact your state chair to ensure that you receive these notices.
- Respondent for Participating productions is coordinated by the regional chair and covered by members of regional selection committee.
- Contact your state chair (listed below) or the regional chair.
