Saturday at 3:00 pm is New Mexico ‘s New Antiquities Theatre, and the evening at 8:00pm is the award-winning show from The Studio Theatre in Little Rock, Arkansas.  At the recent national American Association of Community Theatre, their show won 3 acting awards and was named one of the top three shows in the na- tion.    Immediately following the performances, a nation- ally-known adjudicator, Tom Booth, from Tupelo, MS will give oral commentary for the cast and the audience. Part of the fun of seeing shows as an audi- ence member is watching the same show and have the adjudicator see the same things and the different things that everyone sees!  Workshops during the day bring professional development from all the states. The Silent Auction provides theatre memorabilia for sale. In between events networking with other theatre devotees and professionals offers opportunities to learn.  The Awards will be presented on Saturday evening after the performances.
