Dramatic Differences (DC TIOS 2015 Theme): We are Theatre Educators. We teach children, adolescents, teenagers, and adults. We work in pre-schools, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, universities, theatres, performing arts centers, churches, and businesses. We stage productions. We facilitate drama activities in classrooms and workshops. We are writers. We are independent consultants. We are actors. We come together for one Saturday to share with and learn from theatre artists and educators. We celebrate our differences and build upon our similarities.
Light breakfast and lunch provided.
