Teachers Conference Sept. 17-18, 2020

Theatre Teachers don’t miss the most outstanding networking and educational event of the year designed exclusively designed for your discipline, the Colorado Theatre Educators Conference. If you have never attended check out our highlight video of our previous Conference.  Due to popular demand, we will once again return to the Brown Palace (321 17th Street, Denver, CO 80202) for our Awards Dinner, 6 p.m on the 12th of September. Make sure to cancel any Thursday evening rehearsals and join us for an important gathering of your peers.

The conference fee is $150 per person and Graduate credit through UNC is offered or a continuing hours certificate – see below for signing up for credit. Be sure to check with your administration to see if your registration cost can be covered by your buildings professional development fund. Registration includes the awards dinner and a full day of workshops at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.

No refunds are offered after submission, due to space and meal considerations. Please note, in order to participate in the awards dinner, reservations must be processed in advance. Please be aware UNC credit is only offered for full day participation. We will do our best to accommodate late registrations, but seating is limited.
