Theatre for Youth Division

The Theatre for Youth Division hosts two festivals annually at the Georgia Theatre Conference; The Theatre for Youth Festival and the Middle School Festival.


The Theatre for Youth Festival is a community service provided by the Georgia Theatre Conference  to the host city, as a thank you for welcoming GTC  into their community. 

The Middle School One Act Festival was created in 2015 by the Georgia Theatre Conference. This Festival was created to give Middle School theatre directors in the state of Georgia an opportunity to showcase their students, gain feedback for their performances and to have the ability to network with other teachers across the state. This festival is designed to promote theatre among the middle grades and to prepare students for high school one act competition.

Middle School Festival Participants (5th-8th grade)

     $150 per team plus $10 per student or chaperone. (Includes Director’s membership and registration, plus festival fee).


Middle School Students are not allowed to attend any other GTC convention programming and therefore are not required
