The entire NCTC festival showcases the talent of more than 3,000 students from 100+ schools, in nearly 130 productions over the duration of two weekends of regional festivals across the state. The program was named one of the ‘Top High School Theatre Festivals’ by Stage Directions Magazine and is the largest high school theatre event on the southeast.

The basic premise of the Festival is that schools load-in their set into a backstage area that is approximately 10′ x 10′, before taking the stage to perform their show. Each production has 45 minutes to set up, perform and strike the production, and must cross the finish line before the 45 minutes are up. Following their performance, students receive verbal feedback from two judges from the theatre industry.
