Welcome Note

Welcome to KCACTF Region VII

Ronn Campbell, Region Chair

It is an understatement that we are living in unprecedented times. Covid-19 has taken away the reason that makes theatre so special, when the performers and audience come together in the here and now. The cancelling of performances, closing of classes, and ending of programs have dampened our spirits and separated us into a virtual world. But theatre has survived times like these before and we will survive again. Theatre will be changed by this experience and we in Region VII are excited to be part of the future of Theatre. We are looking to support this transformation through new initiatives like Representation, Equity and Diversity (R.E.D.) and the Student Advisory Board of the Region (S.A.B.R.). I have witnessed inspiration and creativity with live Zoom performances and classroom instruction. No, it is not the same but, it means we haven’t been defeated. So it is my promise to you that KCACTF Region VII will be here to provide instructional tools, technical help, feedback and anything else we can to support you and your programs in creating brilliant theatre experiences. Enjoy our new website and let’s build a new world together.
