2020 Vision: Building a New Future

The landscape of theatre education has changed drastically in the last two years–and it’s both exciting and overwhelming. This year’s conference will help educators get on top of these changes, and prepare for what comes next in theatre education in California.

The California Educational Theatre Association is pleased to present its annual Fall Conference, 2020 Vision, in collaboration with the Pacific Conservatory Theatre (PCPA).  The conference will take place on their campus, October 11th – 13th, 2019 in beautiful Santa Maria, CA.

Here’s why every California Theatre Educator should be here.

Our focus:

• The new California Arts Standards
• Implementation of the California Arts Framework
• Progress on the new California Theatre credential
• Curricular alignment & arts integration tools

PLUS: Be INSPIRED with extensive technical theatre workshops this year, along with workshops in acting, writing and pedagogy. 

NEW TEACHERS: Find the help you need!  Find resources and mentoring through our special opportunities, just for you.

You’ll find it all at this year’s conference, at PCPA at Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria.

We invite you to explore the site and reserve your lodging early!
