Welcome to the production registration system for the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival. Here are a few ways registration has changed.
PLEASE NOTE. This site is not for festival registration. To register to attend a regional festival, visit your region's website.
You will first need to sign up for a user account by clicking the "School Registration" link. While this is an additional step, it will allow you to log back into the system to view production information, print invoices, and reduce the amount of things you need to re-enter for each production. You will not be approved automatically. We will approve your account as soon as possible, but it may take up to a day or a weekend. You only need to do this once. We ask that each school have one account with WildApricot for registering shows, that way we can keep organized records of your institution’s participation.
You can pay for your shows immediately with a credit card. No more calling into the KCACTF office or faxing over your credit card information!
Your account will have all of your invoices and receipts to access at any time.
SCHOOL REGISTRATION (user account): Registration of your college or university for KCACTF. Once you've done this, you don't need to do it again. You'll get a membership account (which is free), and members can register shows in KCACTF year after year. You can log back in to revisit your payment records. If you need to transfer the account to another individual, email Kelsey at KRMesa@kennedy-center.org, who can make the change and reset the password.
PRODUCTION REGISTRATION: With your new member account, register all the productions your school wants. They will all be connected to your account, where you will be able to see your invoices and pay for production entry fees with a credit card. (You can also choose "invoice me," to pay via check. You can find more information, including Sponsorship Information, here.
If you have any questions about registrations, feel free to contact me and/or Kelsey Mesa, Manager of KCACTF and Theater Education at The Kennedy Center (email@example.com). For questions about your response, please contact your regional chair.
