Technical Theatre Skills Track
The Technical Theatre Skills track is for those who work behind the scenes. Learn to master the challenges you face as you work within the amenities of your theatre, from stage size, lighting systems, and scenery to costumes. Experts will give hands-on training in several areas of technical theatre. This track will help you find resources and supplies you can utilize in your theatre, increase your excitement in the magic of technical theatre, and provide you with a nationwide network of fellow techies! A team of technicians will facilitate this track.  No technical theatre training is required, but even experienced techies will benefit.
Educational Programming Directors Track
Boost your theatre’s education program, exchange ideas and experiences, and learn skills to better manage your programs. The Educational Programming Directors track will give you skills to tackle theatre education issues, a renewed enthusiasm to build your educational programs, and provide you with a network of colleagues from all over the country. The Educational Programming Directors track is for anyone, whatever his or her title, who is responsible for their theatre’s education program.
Artistic Direction Vision Track
Choose the right plays for your next season; learn solutions for choosing directors, recruiting actors, and solving technical problems; and examine long-range planning. Discover and re-envision exciting ways to produce high quality theatre as you exchange ideas and experiences with fellow producers and artistic directors. Artistic Direction Vision track is for anyone, whatever his or her title, who is responsible for the overall artistic direction of their theatre.

Marketing/Development Skills Track
Discover strategies and tactics to increase your fundraising and marketing abilities, and learn ways to create loyalty to your organization and promote its place in your community. The Marketing/Development Skills track will help you understand methods for small, medium, and large sized arts groups to enlist donors and sponsors, build audiences, and to use marketing and branding in today’s changing social media world. The Development/Marketing Skills track is for anyone from board members to staff who raises funds or promotes their theatre.
