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. Moderators prepare a list of potential topics for each call with input from the participants creating an open and engaging learning environment.

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