Lenaea Arts Festival

Inspired by the Lenaea Festival of Ancient Greece, Dr. Carl Thomas, then Chair of Sacramento State College’s Department of Theatre, initiated this program in 1955. His desire was to establish an event that would support and encourage high school students with an interest in theatre. Over the years, Lenaea has grown into a multi-programmed event with recognition not only for one-act productions but for audition pieces (monologues and duo scenes) as well.

Several groups from Oak Ridge are participating. Everyone is welcome to visit!

Details: January 31-February 2 at The Harris Center for the Arts
