2015 TCG National Conference Host Committee

Host Committee

Every year, the National Conference could not happen without the on-the-ground work of the Conference city's host committee of TCG Member Theatres. This year TCG collaborated with these leaders of Cleveland's vibrant and game-changing theatre community. The 2015 Cleveland host committee produced this year's Opening Night Party (hosted by Cleveland Public Theatre), arranged an array of successful dinearounds, contributed many community resources, planned and hosted the Late Night Party, recruited some fantastic local volunteers and so much more. When you run into any of the below colleagues in your field journeys, please remember to shake their hands for all the time and effort they put into making TCG's 25th Conference a true game-changer.
