KATY (Covering Katy) – Katy Visual and Performing Arts Center Encore Players, Katy’s award-winning community theater, won the Texas state competition of the Biennial American Association of Community Theatre Fest hosted by Texas Nonprofit Theatres this past weekend in Lewisville, Texas.
KVPAC competed with the one act play “Answers” by Tom Topor.
Gregory J. Magyar, KVPAC’s executive artistic director, performed with Trenton Stephenson and James Duncan under the direction of Joshua Schorejs, a director and teacher at KVPAC, who won the 2017 Excellence in Directing Award.
Community theater is just one component of KVPAC, Magyar said.
“We are an arts-rich community delivering visual and performing arts for all ages featuring quality programming for everyone in Katy and the surrounding areas,” said Magyar. The summer program of theater, art and pre-K classes is available online at www.kvpac.org.
KVPAC is asking for help raising money to compete at the AACTFest regional level in Lafayette, Louisiana, on April 7.
