Region 8 of the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival is comprised of Arizona, Central and Southern California, Hawaii, Southern Nevada, Utah and Guam.

Each year the KCACTF Region 8 Festival brings students and faculty together in mid February to see one another’s work and to share ideas. In addition to performances, there are a wide range of activities that in the past have included workshops and seminars on such topics as playwriting, auditioning, voice, movement, stage combat, theater for children, scene painting, scenery construction, and so on. There are sessions for beginning theater artists and the experienced faculty member.

Students, faculty, and staff who bring productions to regional festivals are encouraged to attend the entire festival. All festival participants are urged to attend productions brought by their peers, participate as audience or auditioners in the Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship program, and to avail themselves of the full range of workshops, symposia, and exhibits that are part of each regional festival.
