Teenage Dream: Teen Programs at NAMT Member Theatres

August 19, 2016 4:45 pm ET

For the first time ever, we be streamed a session from one of our in-person networking and education events as a Knowledge Exchange webinar! Amy Cole-Farrell (TheatreWorks Silicon Valley), Bradford Forehand (Red Mountain Theatre Company) and Anya Rudnick (The 5th Avenue Theatre) presented on their theatres’ teen programs, and all of our Education Roundtable attendees participated in a discussion about them and some of their own challenges.
