Tempest Productions is proud to present the first annual Central PA Theatre & Dance Fest in downtown State College with over 20 companies performing and producing. Check the schedule for our exciting inaugural year!  See an Hourly Schedule Here

From mainstage performances of The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Poe: Deep Into That Darknessto Improvisation Comedy, Burlesque, Belly Dancing, Panel Discussions, Readings, Classes, Workshops, Family-Friendly Activities, and many others, the festival offers 3-days of programming with over 20 companies participating.

What makes this collection of performances special is that you rarely have the opportunity to see this many performances at one place and time. With the venues being just a stone's throw away from one another it will be very convenient for visitors to get to several different performances that catch their eye. 

If hands on opportunities are what you're looking for there will be workshops that allow visitors to the event to not only get to enjoy the visual performances, but also learn a skill of the performing arts that they can take home with them. If you're someone that is already a playwright, you can compete in the Central PA Theatre & Dance Fest Playwriting Competition which will be performed throughout the festival.
