Theater Festival comes to Lee College

The Lee College Performing Arts Center will host three visiting theater companies Saturday in a competition held by Texas Nonprofit Theaters.

TNT holds four regional “Quad Fests” as the first stage of its theater competition.

The three shows Saturday are “Priscilla Dreams the Answer” from The Plaza Theatre in Wharton at 2:30 p.m., “The Stranger” from Encore Arts in Katy at 4:15 p.m., and “1984” at 7 p.m.

Individual show tickets are $15.

Lee College will also host the statewide TNT competition March 13-16. The college has hosted TNT’s youth theater festival in the past, but this is the first time it has hosted the competition for shows with adult actors.
