KCACTF Region 6 and Region 7 Next Step Logo

KCACTF Region 6 and Region 7 are delighted to combine efforts this year to offer auditions to connect students with hiring companies and graduate-level programs. Next Step Auditions strive to bridge the undergraduate experience with graduate education and professional companies. We also seek to align two-year college program graduates with four-year college and university opportunities. Actors, musicians, and technicians may submit videos and digital portfolios to be seen by select companies and programs.
