Idaho State University's School of Performing Arts is proud to announce that their exceptional production of "Life X 3" by Yasmina Reza has been chosen as one of the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival's (KCACTF) regional finalists for this year.

This prestigious recognition acknowledges the department's dedication to artistic excellence and creativity.

As a regional finalist, ISU's theatre department has been granted the opportunity to showcase its production at the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Region VII Festival in Spokane, WA, taking place in February. The performance is scheduled for Wednesday, February 21 at Gonzaga University's Magnuson Theatre.

In addition to the honor of being a regional finalist, the participating cast and crew members of "Life X 3" will have the chance to be considered for national awards. On Thursday, February 22, distinguished national KCACTF adjudicators will provide detailed feedback to the talented team. The announcement of national awards, which recognize outstanding achievements, will be revealed later in the spring.

"We are both humbled and thrilled to be selected as a Regional Finalist for KCACTF," said director and ISU faculty member, Vanessa Ballam. "This recognition is a testament to the hard work, creativity, and dedication of our department's students, faculty, and staff. We are excited to bring our production of 'Life X 3' to the festival and look forward to the invaluable feedback and potential national recognition from the distinguished adjudicators."
