Southeastern Louisiana Theatre Conference

LSU Theatre is excited to sponsor the Southeastern Louisiana Theatre Conference!  This event will be a gathering for area high school students and their theatre teachers on October 7, 2017.  Workshops for students of all levels will be provided in many areas of theatre including performance, design and technology, film and arts administration.   Professional development workshops for teachers will also be offered led by local professionals and LSU faculty members.  The SELTC mission is to foster a nurturing environment for theatre students and their teachers to further develop their creative skills and learn from professionals in the field.  In addition to the workshops that are available, attendees are also invited to attend the Saturday evening performance of LSU Theatre's production of LMNOP, THE MUZICAL.  

The schedule is still in process, but below is a sample schedule.  Unfortunately, we have reached our participant cap for this years' conference.  If you have any questions, please contact Josh Allred (225-578-4174 or jallre3@lsu.edu).
