24 Hour Play Fest

Calling all student playwrights, directors, and actors for 24 hours of theatre making magic! Local writers, directors, and actors have 24 hours to bring all new scripts to life - from writing to final performance! On the first evening at 6:00pm playwrights will be given a prompt for a play. Directors and actors arrive the next morning for casting and begin rehearsals of the brand new 10-minute plays . At 7:00pm the next evening, they share their world-premiere performance of these scripts with our First Act Theatre Arts audience.

KC Improv Tournament

The First Act Improv Troupe invites all area Improv troupes for a full day full of fun and competition. Teams of 5 will compete in 3 rounds of Comedy Sport style competition (think "Who's Line is it Anyways") for a panel of professional KC area judges. Teams will earn points over the three rounds and the team with the most points wins! The team that comes out on top will receive a sweet trophy and bragging rights for a year. Students ages 12 through 18 can audition October 22nd to be a part of First Act’s Improv Troupe. Registration for the 1st annual KC Improv Tournament will open in December for Troupes from other schools, community groups, or theatre companies.
