ASK NOT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR THEATRE DEPARTMENT, BUT WHAT YOUR THEATRE DEPARTMENT CAN DO FOR YOU
In this collaborative workshop targeted towards teachers and school administrators, Mrs. Joy Ferrara will lead conversations on how to grow a theatre program to affect change with staff and students in their school district.
