Secondary School Theatre Division
The Secondary School Division of GTC serves public and private high school and middle school theatre faculty, staff, and students. The convention offers opportunities for participation in two high school theatre festivals, a technical theatre challenge competition, and secondary school /college transfer auditions.
R. Lynne Wooddy Festival
The R. Lynn Wooddy Festival has a 55-minute time limit, bare stage-to-bare stage. The festival rules follow the One Act Play rules found each year in the Georgia High School Association GHSA Constitution & By-laws. Schools who participate in the Wooddy Festival often do so in order to receive feedback on their production prior to the annual GHSA competition. The winner of this festival receives the R. Lynn Wooddy Best Play Award.
Individual Events Festival
The Individual Events Festival is actually sponsored by the GTC Community Theatre Division. You can find more information about the festival on the Community Theatre Division webpage.
Ray Horne Festival
The Ray Horne Festival has a 45-minute time limit, bare stage-to-bear stage. The festival rules follow the rules in place for the Southeastern Theatre Conference Secondary School Division's annual Festival of One Act Plays. While no "winner" is named in the Ray Horne Festival, each year the top two outstanding productions named by the adjudicators are invited to represent Georgia at the annual convention and festival sponsored by SETC, a 10-state organization of theatre professionals in the southeastern United States.
GTC's Secondary Tech Challenge is scheduled to return soon. Watch here for more information!
