About the Student Theater Festival – Now in its 50th year!

The Student Theater Festival, in collaboration with Newtown Arts Company, is an opportunity for teens from throughout the region to come to the Playhouse to perform for each other, take master classes, and receive professional adjudication.

Top performances are selected at the end of Student Theater Festival to participate in a “Best of Fest” in which the students and the schools are able to showcase their talents for a special guest panel of professional theater artists as well as their friends and families.
