Come one, come all to AACTWorldFest, 2014! You’ll have the time of your life at this Festival in Paradise. It’s all happening June 16-21, 2014.
What is it?
AACTWorldFest is a world-wide community theatre festival which occurs in Venice, Florida, USA. Shows from around the globe will travel for the week to this resort haven on Florida’s southwest coast.
As many as 15 top-quality international troupes will present up to 30 performances in one week! Each group may perform in its native language, but all productions are chosen so that anyone can follow what’s happening … in whatever theatre form it’s presented.
Plus, there will be multiple workshops and master classes involving a variety of theatre forms.
Mix in delightful dinners, parties, after-glow gatherings, impromptu drum circles, and “lobby gabs” and you have the recipe for life-long friendships! We’ll just quote Line Hauger of Denmark: “The best festival I’ve ever attended!”
We’re now recruiting shows from around the world!
