In early March, 5 students and 3 alumni traveled with me to the Southeastern Theatre Conference in Louisville, KY. SETC is the largest theatre networking organization in the country. The group attended dozens of workshops and performances, interviewed with graduate school representatives, and auditioned for full and part-time employment.
One of my students told me later that attending SETC helped to confirm her commitment to work in professional theatre.
Next year's conference is in Mobile AL. We'll be there!
