In 2017, the Institute of Outdoor Theatre transitioned into its new partnership and management relationship with SETC. Together SETC and the IOT are building upon the services that have long been valued by members, including Summer/Outdoor Theatre Auditions, an annual conference, year-round consulting, and online resources.
Summer and Outdoor Theatre Auditions
Each January, SETC Outdoor Theatre conducts auditions for summer and outdoor theatres including acting, singing, dance and stage combat auditions. Interviews are also available for technical positions and internship opportunities. The 2019 auditions will be held Jan. 18 and 19, 2019, at Greensboro College in Greensboro, NC. Applications are no longer being accepted for this year’s event.
National Conference on Outdoor Theatre
Each October theatre leaders gather for a multi-day networking event where conference attendees trade insights and explore new concepts. It is an opportunity to meet others in the industry and share experiences. The 2018 conference was hosted by The Lost Colony in Manteo, NC and was a great success. The 2019 conference will be hosted by the Santa Fe Opera Oct. 1-3. Click the link below for upcoming programming details. We hope you can join us in Santa Fe!
Theatre Consulting Network
SETC and the Institute of Outdoor Theatre have combined their consulting and technical assistance programs in a new initiative: the Theatre Consulting Network. The Theatre Consulting Network will draw on the resources of a national network of theatre specialists to advise organizations on a comprehensive range of issues.
