We plan to cover results from the past year, review our judging process, look at the year ahead, and discuss items that we'd like to cover in more detail at the winter forum. Please come prepared with thoughts as to what we as a judging community need to do to continue to improve our craft. Your input is critical as we refine our craft.

The ACT Adjudication Program is central to ACT’s core mission of "Connect, Educate, Recognize". The “Judging Program”, as it is commonly referred to, was created in order to encourage the continued growth and development of quality community theater through a process of positive feedback, constructive criticism and peer recognition. The focus of the program is on education through constructive criticism.
Through this program, ACT provides three adjudicators to attend each member group’s productions. The adjudicators are assigned by the Judging Assistants under the supervision of the 2nd Vice President. Adjudicators are drawn from a pool of fellow community theater performers and technicians as well as professors from local colleges and universities. After viewing the show, the adjudicators submit a written critique covering 23 production and performance areas. The 2nd Vice President reviews the three critiques and then forwards them to the member groups who often chose to share the critiques with all of the cast and crew members of the production. It is hoped that each critique will provide useful tips and feedback that performers and production staff can draw from on future theatrical endeavors.
