Festival Information on the Guidebook App
The Festival has a Guidebook App which is the best way to find all information regarding locations and times of workshops and productions.  It also has information on FESTGEAR, Swap Desk, and  Friday Night Activities.  Maps of the University can also be found in this app.


The Festival will no longer provide a Program book provided to all attendees.  One program book will be provided to each registered school.  All information that has been in the previous program books will be listed in the Guidebook App.

This app will be made available beginning in early January.  More information on how to download Guidebook from your app store and what to search for within the Guidebook app will be updated on here in mid-December!  We highly encourage you to download this app a few days before arrival at the Festival.  Please check back for this information!
