Welcome

 

WELCOME TO THIS YEAR’S EXCITING FALL CONFERENCE FROM THE CALIFORNIA EDUCATIONAL THEATRE ASSOCIATION!

This year’s conference will be held at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, home of the Emmys, in North Hollywood Arts District. We’ll also be at the historic El Portal Theatre, CSz Los Angeles (home of ComedySportz), the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, and other venues–all walk-able or easily reached by Metrorail, only one block from our hotel.

Our conference theme is “Who Tells Your Story?,” inspired by the smash-hit musical Hamilton, which we’ll see on Thursday night. How do we, as theatre educators, tell stories?  How do we challenge our students and audiences? How do we tell the story of our own work within our districts and communities? We’ll explore all of these questions through an exciting itinerary of speakers, workshops, performances, and collaboration.

There are many exciting surprises this year. We invite you to explore our conference site and register early. Hamilton tickets are limited!
