This week is sure to be an exciting time for Los Alamos. It may be a tad more crowded and there may be more sightseers, especially around Los Alamos Little Theatre on Nectar Street.
The influx of visitors might just be one consequence of LALT playing host to the New Mexico American Association of Community Theatre Festival.
AACTFest participants include community theatres from all over the state. The festival involves a variety of activities, including monologue competitions and workshops focusing on topics such as costuming, marketing, directing and playwriting.
Biennially, community theatres are also invited to present an hour’s worth of a production, under a strict set of guidelines.
Each theatre has10 minutes to set up for the performance, an additional 10 minutes for post-performance deconstruction, and all set pieces must fit in a 10-foot by 10-foot square.
Each abridged performance is timed and judged by adjudicators who provide input and feedback on the performance. In the end, one or two theatres are chosen to move on to the regional competition, with a chance to advance all the way to the national contest.
This year, Los Alamos Little Theatre will host AACTFest, Thursday through Sunday.
