  • If you are considering bringing a show to present during the festival for adjudication, please complete the online registration form (see link below) as soon as possible.  Please note that the registration form requires you to answer how many adults and children will participate in your production.  It is OK to give a close estimation of these numbers that can be adjusted before you make your final payment.  Once your online registration is completed, you will be contacted and provided additional forms and information.  The festival can only accommodate a limited number of productions, so you are encouraged to submit your show as soon as possible to secure your spot at the festival.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact Cindy Harper, Executive Director, at 205-483-2282 or [email protected].


UPDATED MANUALS WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON.  Please review these to get a head start.
