Participants & Visitors



We’re excited to have you be a part of the festival!

Participants are required to be checked in by the Program Director or an authorized chaperone no later than one hour before their school’s first scheduled event. Check in is located inside the lobby of the Harris Center for the Arts.

Please check final schedules and bulletin boards for any changes.

You will need to contact the Festival Technical Director immediately after you check in to make final arrangements for your load-in. Load-in will be prepared according to your Technical Questionnaire.

  • Technical requests submitted day of the performance may not be honored.
  • Props and costumes may not be left in the shop area without prior arrangement.
  • Each school has 15 minutes to set up and 15 minutes to strike.
  • Be sure to indicate the running time of your production on your registration form.

For technical questions, one-act play set up or venue details, contact Ian Wallace.

Dressing rooms are available one hour before and 45 minutes after performances. Dressing rooms will be used by multiple schools and may be co-ed (there are bathrooms backstage for those who wish more privacy.) Dressing room assignments will be given at check in.

Do not leave valuables unattended. The Harris Center for the Arts/Three Stages at Folsom Lake College and the Lenaea High School Theatre Festival are not responsible for any lost or stolen items.

It is the responsibility of the Program Directors to send parents written confirmation of all festival details (event times, hotel room info, etc.) so parents will know where their children are at all times.

It is imperative that everyone observes the rules of theatre etiquette in order for all schools to have a fair and equal opportunity. Distractions, noise and interruptions are not acceptable. Food, drink, photography, and use of any electronic devices are strictly prohibited in all performance spaces and classrooms. Videotaping from a seated position is permitted during Command Performances and Closing Awards Ceremony as long as audience views are not obstructed.

Please note that Harris Center Three Stages and Folsom Lake College have strict policies of only allowing scheduled events to take place. This includes performances of any kind and at any location on the campus.
