This week, about half of our department is at the Southeastern Theatre Conference (SETC) which this year is in Lexington, Kentucky. This conference is held each year for theatre professionals, academics and students from all over the Southeastern part of the US. (Officially Virginia through Louisiana, but there are people here from all over the country). Workshops and Keynote addresses, performances and committee meetings, networking and auditions and job contact meetings from Thursday morning through Saturday night. Thousands of theatre people all under one roof. Two of Belhaven’s performers are auditioning in front of more than a hundred companies and graduate programs looking for summer work, further education, or beyond. Many other students are interviewing or presenting portfolios looking for work in technical or production related positions.
Stay tuned for posts about our individual experiences at SETC 2010!
