ARTa 2005 at Mt. San Antonio College

ARTa and the ARTc National Championship Tournament celebrated its fifth birthday May 6-8 at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, CA. It was the largest field to date with 17 theaters in competition from both two- and four-year schools, as well as a hybrid team. Once again ARTa attracted several ARTa world premiere theaters.


Theaters were evaluated by 15 critics in prelims, panels of 5 judges in semifinals, and 11 for the final public performance round -- one of the most impressive panels in forensics history. It included several entertainment industry professionals and forensics luminaries.
