Catawba hosting theater festival

 The North Carolina Theatre Conference High School Regional Play Festival will be held at Catawba College Friday and Saturday.
Catawba’s theater arts department will host the festival, held in Keppel Auditorium. Performances are free and open to the public.
The festival showcases 300 young theater artists from central North Carolina high schools. Each production has 45 minutes to: assemble the world of their play on stage, share their performance and remove everything from the space.
An adjudicator then offers a 10-minute public oral response to the work.
Those who want to witness the full process should arrive by five minutes before the hour.
