Theatre Professionals Teleconferences

Theatre Professionals Teleconferences are held each year on a rotating basis for groups of theatre leaders and staff. Moderated by experienced professionals from the field, these series offer geographically separated theatre professionals the opportunity to share information and ideas and to work with peers to find solutions to common problems. Agendas are directed by the needs and interests of the participants, with assistance from the moderator and TCG staff.

Participation in the Theatre Professionals Teleconferences is open only to TCG Member Theatre staff. A fee of $75 will cover the administrative costs of your participation.
