Festival Information

Next Festival: November 2 & 3, 2018
Dordt College, Sioux Center, Iowa

Past festivals have enabled schools to bring their one-act plays.  This coming festival will be a focus on workshops and skill building for Junior and Senior students interested in theatre.  

1. Travel information (arrival and departure)
Registration for the festival will be approximately 12:00pm on Friday, November 2, 2018, followed by a short time of welcome with announcements and time to get to know each other. The closing ceremony begins at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 3, and should last approximately 30 minutes. Groups may leave after the closing ceremony or the next morning.

2. Cost
Dordt will cover all meals served at the Dordt Dining Hall, housing, and the cost of gas. We will require gas receipts to be submitted in order to be able to reimburse teams. If you need to refill on the way home, please send in your gas receipts as soon as you can so we can get you the refund as quickly as we can. Schools will be responsible for securing their own vehicle and cover the cost of rental and/or driver if necessary.

3. Housing
Students will be hosted by Dordt students (mostly theatre students) in dorm rooms. Please bring your own sleeping bags and pillows. Directors and chaperones will be housed at the Alumni House that is located on Dordt's campus. However, if we run out of space some of the adults will be housed at the Econo Lodge about three minutes or one mile away from Dordt's campus, and will be provided with either a shuttle or a Dordt vehicle.

4. Meals
All meals will be served at the Dordt Dining Hall. Snacks will be provided when the schedule allows. You are responsible for your own meals and snacks while on the road.
