Nebraska Association of Community Theatres



The Minden Community Players will once again host NACT/Fest in 2013 at the Minden Opera House.

This festival provides an opportunity for community theatres to show their stuff and receive feedback from adjudicators.  One or two productions (depending on how many enter the state festival) are also selected to represent Nebraska at the next Regional Theatre Festival.  The next regional festival is scheduled to be held in North Dakota, a host theatre has not yet been named.
