Festival registration is available on a first come, first serve basis as space is limited. You can register as a school, group, or as an individual. As we work hard to bring in awesome guest artists based on the number of registered participants, registration is non-refundable.
Regular registration is open for schools and groups from December 2 through January 8. Registration is $25 per student attendee registered by January 8. Chaperones are $10 each, and we ask that you please bring 1 chaperone for every 15 students. Troupe directors are on us. Once we receive your registration form, we will send you an invoice based on your registration. All payments must be received by February 8 to attend festival. Regular registration fees can be paid via check, made out to MA Educational Theatre Association. For registering schools you must submit one check as form of payment. Multiple checks or cash will not be accepted.
Late registration is available from January 9 to February 3 for $30 per student. All payments for late registrations must be submitted by February 8 upon arrival and can be made via check, PO, or credit card.

Schools do not have to enter a one-act to participate in the individual events and workshops.

As an add-on to your festival experience, you may register a one-act for adjudication. Our one-act slots are limited and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Registration for one-acts opens September 7 and closes once all of our slots are filled. Please know that we are looking at ways of expanding our ability to host more one-acts for future festivals, and we appreciate your understanding.

If we have not received payment by December 15, we will offer the one-act slot to our schools on the waiting list. As we work hard to bring in awesome guest artists to adjudicate, one-act play fees are non-refundable.
