A new theater facility for excerpts + a new banquet venue = excitement all around! Unfortunately, online registration has officially ended.

General Information

The OCTA Southwest Regional Conference is held in June each year. This conference, hosted by ACT Cincinnati, brings together all community theaters in the southwest region for a celebration of theater featuring excerpts from one show from each group’s past season.

Depending upon the number of excerpts being presented that year, the conference can begin on a Thursday or Friday evening and continues all day Saturday.

Though an official OCTA event, ACT Cincinnati acts as host and member groups all take on a job in support of the conference.
