ACT/OCTA Festival Scheduled for June 18th-20th Going Virtual


ACT of Greater Cincinnati.

Dear ACT Members,

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the safety of our members, and the financial well-being of our organization, ACT-Cincinnati has made the difficult decision to move this year’s ACT/OCTA Festival scheduled for June 18th-20th to a virtual event.

This was put to a vote of the ACT-Cincinnati member theaters, and the result was 14-0 in favor of the change with one group abstaining and two groups not responding.

Unfortunately, this means no excerpts will be held. The ACT-Executive Board along with the support of the Long-Range Judging Committee will host the awards online starting at 7 PM EST on Saturday, June 20th.

Details will be forthcoming, but we still encourage members to dress up in the comfort of their own homes, tune in, share photos to social media, and celebrate the season. It will be different, for sure, but the show will go on in a way that we can maintain the safety of everyone involved.

Please stay safe, stay healthy, and we look forward to when we come together as a theater community again.


Dan Maloney, President of ACT-Cincinnati
Amanda Emmons Shumate – 1st VP of ACT-Cincinnati/Conference Chair
