Join us virtually for the 57th National Conference on Outdoor Theatre on Oct. 1-2, 2020

Where theatre leaders share their experience and explore new concepts!

Due to the Covid-19 crisis, this year’s conference will be provided virtually at a reduced cost to attendees. This year’s virtual conference will focus on practical solutions for the pressing issues that we are all facing during this time.

Our live presentations will build robust discussions and reach for solutions that range from safely reopening a theatre in the midst of a pandemic, building equity, diversity, and inclusion in the performing arts, alternative performance options for outdoor theatre, and incorporating design in a virtual world. Of course, we will continue our informative roundtable discussions with a built-in happy hour.

While we will miss meeting with one another in person this year, we are happy to announce that our 2021 National Conference on Outdoor Theatre will be held at The Promise in Glen Rose. For more information on The Promise at Glen Rose, visit
