Cité des Arts, Theatre 810 and Acadiana Center for the Arts are presenting the Hub City Theater and Storytelling Festival, Thursday, Dec. 6 - Sun., Dec. 9, 2012. The Festival will consist of original works, plays, storytelling, readings, street performances, workshops and panels - and a Liars Contest (AKA The Honorable Practice and Art of the Tall Tale). The performances, workshops and group panels will be for writers, directors, actors, storytellers, teachers, parents and kids - and audiences of every character and spirit.
The HCTSF mission is to foster the Southern literary arts by supporting, encouraging and cultivating new and emerging voices in the performing arts, as well as, developing new audiences for these voices. It will take place at three locations: Cité des Arts, Theatre 810 and Acadiana Center for the Arts. Theatre 810 is hosting the first annual Entrances Student Theatre Festival where theatre students in our area can present their mid-year work to one another, network and attend workshops on both performance and technical aspects of theatre.
