Kaleidoscope 2019 to be held in Prosser, Washington

Kaleidoscope 2019! Our biennial state community theatre festival will be hosted by The Valley Theatre Company in Prosser February 27 – March 3, 2019. As part of the American Association of Community Theatre’s AACTFest 2019 cycle, Kaleidoscope is the first step in a national festival that will culminate in June 2019 in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Our own Tacoma Musical Playhouse took the top honors at AACTFest 2017 and we would love to see a theatre from Washington represented nationally in 2019!

Watch for more details and registration information later this year. If you are planning to bring a production to Kaleidoscope, it’s never too early to start planning!
