Every year, the Southeastern Theatre Conference invites theatre lovers of all kinds to gather together in celebration of the art of theatre. The annual SETC Convention brings more than 4,000 members of the theatre community together for three and a half days of workshops, keynotes, auditions, college recruiting, job interviews and more.

This school year, the Southeastern Theatre Conference will be held in Lexington, KY, from March 1 to March 5. Both McGavock and NSA will represent our schools, our district and our state by performing as a part of the Secondary School Festival on March 2 and 3 to compete for the best Secondary School Play Production in the Southeast.
