NEW LOCATION! Theatre lovers, join your like-minded colleagues the weekend of November 22-24, 2019 at Rome Community Theater in Rome, NY, as the Theatre Association of New York State (TANYS) presents Festival 2019: TANYS is Forever!

For newcomers to Festival, longtime attendees, and everyone in between, the TANYS Festival is the highlight of community theatre in New York State - and it's one of the BEST deals you will find anywhere for a FULL weekend immersed in the live theatre experience. Shows invited to perform at the TANYS Festival represent the best of non-professional theatre from throughout New York State. You'll enjoy several performances, adjudications, displays, learning, networking, and much more... in one big, whirlwind weekend of fun!

Here's what you'll enjoy at the 2019 TANYS Festival:

  • Several exciting performances, bundled in 4 sessions:
    • Friday night session
    • Saturday morning session
    • Saturday afternoon session
    • Sunday morning session
  • Informative feedback on every performance from our panel of 3 nationally-renowned adjudicators
  • The BMI Supply Design Competition - with CASH PRIZES for the winners!
  • Roving Adjudicator Merit Awards (for productions adjudicated throughout the year) presented at the Saturday night Banquet
  • A great selection of TANYS-imprinted wearables and accessories to purchase
  • Cutthroat bidding on unique Silent Auction items
  • Networking with fellow theatre lovers from across NYS and beyond

Our official Festival hotel is the Hampton Inn, 1352 Floyd Ave, Rome - within walking distance of the Friday night Afterglow, and the only hotel that will have shuttle service to the Saturday night Awards Banquet.

If you're on the TANYS postal mailing list, look for the Fall 2019 issue of CALLBOARD (the TANYS newsletter) to arrive soon with all the details. We'll also post the electronic version ASAP on the TANYS website. The CALLBOARD contains full information on the hotel, Festival schedule and other details.

Earlybird registration deadline is FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2019. Earlybirds SAVE over late registrations - and if you're a TANYS individual member, you'll get even BIGGER discounts on ticket prices. ALL online registration options will END at 5:00 PM on Monday, November 18, 2019. So don't wait - register NOW to secure your spot at the don't-miss celebration of non-professional theatre in New York State!
