    Dates: March 1 - 5, 2023


    The SETC Fringe Festival is a non-competitive performance festival that takes place each year during the annual SETC Convention. The Festival seeks to provide and nurture an artistic community and outlet for SETC members and constituents to learn, experiment, and present their theatrical works. The primary goal of the Fringe Festival is to provide a theatrical experience for the SETC Convention attendees as well as a forum for works that may not easily fit in the parameters of other venues. Shows range from college/university theatre to professional theatre performances to one-person shows to experimental theatre to theatre for youth productions to state festival ‘runner-up’ performances. We invite all convention attendees to attend the Fringe Festival performances at no additional cost.

    Each program in our AACT Webinars offers a unique format, but all are designed to benefit theatre organizations and individuals, regardless of location or budget size:

    • Roundtables: Monthly, panel-based discussions available to AACT members only, these free events feature four to six experts sharing their insight and experience. Attendees may submit questions during the event or in advance.
    • Virtual Masterclasses: 75 to 90-minute, in-depth explorations of specific skills or topics, offered every other month. Registration is $15 for AACT Members; $25 for non-members.
    • Industry Connections: 30-minute presentations from major theatre resource providers showcase their services and support for theatres. These monthly events stream live to the general public, but only AACT members have the opportunity to interact with presenters.
    • Script Club: Offered every other month, Script Club is a collaborative conversation with peers about the selected script. Learn more about titles trending with community theatres, discover strategies for the challenges and opportunities, and network with other organizations producing the show.   Available for members only; $10.  Attendees are expected to read the script before attending.
