This episode was recorded in the thick of the AACT Festival competition season, as we were readying “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” for nationals.  The more you know what to expect in the unusual world of competitive theatre, the better off you’ll be.  Here are some of our insights (Marcia is also a festival veteran as a director) into the process, how to plan and how to get the most from the whole experience.
