The festival consists of 14-16 plays over two days. You and your space would need to be available from very early in the morning to very late at night. NCTC is not able to rent your space or pay any fees, but provides a small host stipend. NCTC provides adjudicators and on-site representation from the NCTC board to assist you. The NCTC Executive Director would provide you with a host training packet and extensive phone training. The NCTC office also handles all registration and payment information.
You would need to provide the following:
- A proscenium theatre space with 300+ seats and backstage space that can accommodate at least 4 shows loading into a 10x10 space each
- A coordinator (teacher, faculty or staff member) that will be the point of contact with NCTC, will handle scheduling, will send out materials to schools, organize light/sound cue sheet, design and print the programs, and run the festival
- A crew of volunteers (some can be students) to serve as stage managers, time keepers, ushers, light/sound technicians, and liaisons to each school
- A basic lighting plot and sound system, and adults or advanced students to run the boards
- Programs - schools will email program pages to you upon registering for you to create copies of the program for each participant
