Making and Teaching Theatre in
a Vibrantly Shifting World
A Conversation with Rosemary Quinn
Oct 7, Nov 4, Dec 2, 2023
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM ET

Where is theatre going? As makers and teachers of theatre, how has the world shifted the way we work with each other? How do we guide others in a time of volatile change?


Join Rosemary for a facilitated conversation in which we will reflect on creation, performance, and pedagogy. Bring your experiences, exercises, challenges, and emerging possibilities. This Zoom gathering is open to teachers, actors, directors, writers, and all who love the theatre. Let’s look to the future with optimism and share the reasons that brought us to the theatre and changed our lives.

The Zoom link will be emailed to you on the morning of the event.
