Baytown Little Theater Advances to State

Baytown Little Theater is part of a community family called Texas Nonprofit Theaters (TNT).  Every other year the organization holds a contest in conjunction with the national organization AACT (American Association of Community Theatre).

Texas is divided into Quads of which the Houston area is Quad IV.  The Quad IV theater festival was held last January 7, 8 at Beaumont Community Players in Beaumont, Texas.  Of the four companies competing, two plays advanced to the state level and will compete March 17-19 in Fort Worth, Texas, to advance to the Regional festival.

At the Beaumont Quad IV Festival, Baytown Little Theater proudly presented “Rabbit Hole”, directed by Randy Daily.  The cast did a superb job and won a place in the state competition in March. Randy received a special director’s award from the adjudicator in Beaumont and two members of the cast were named to the All-Star cast, Jessica Megginson and Dawn Daily.

Kim joined the crew to run sound for the BLT company during this competition.  We are both members of TNT and AACT and have enjoyed many of the festival/conferences over the years.

The competition continues as follows:

Texas State Festival: William E. Scott Theatre, Fort Worth, March 17 – 19, 2011

Region VI AACTFest: Lewisville Center for the Creative Arts, Lewisville, Texas, April 14-17, 2011

National AACTFest 11: Rochester, New York, June 20-26, 2011

Sending our “Rabbit Hole” cast and crew positive vibes to make it all the way to New York and hoping to see lots of friends in Ft. Worth this March!

Our life in theater marches on!
