URTA will host the Women+ Theatre Forum, bringing together women+ theatre artists for discussion and advice. The event will galvanize the community by offering support and encouragement in a safe environment, surrounded by peers and veteran artists.
URTA’s President, Holly Poe Durbin with UC, Irvine colleague Jane Page, will host the Forum on January 26th from 8pm-9pm at the Palmer House in Chicago, during the URTA Auditions & Interviews (“The URTAs”). While URTA regularly offers continuing education programs for candidates at the URTA Audition & Interviews, this Forum will be inclusive and not restricted to attendees of the URTAs.
“We hope many theatre artists will join us in celebrating 50 years of URTA professional development, and add their voices to the community at the Women+ Theatre Forum,” said Christy Hamilton, URTA’s Managing Director.
Free admission + appetizers being generously sponsored by the Palmer House. Wine and beer available for purchase.
