In 2017, the Institute of Outdoor Theatre transitioned into its new partnership and management relationship with SETC. SETC is maintaining and building upon services that have long been valued by the outdoor theatre community, including Summer and Outdoor Theatre Auditions, an annual national conference, year-round consulting, and online resources.

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 56th National Conference on Outdoor Theatre was hosted by The Santa Fe Opera, Oct. 1-3, 2019. Click the link below to review the inspirational and educational programming that was shared at the conference. We hope you can join us for the gathering in 2020 – location TBA.
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 2020 auditions will take place Jan. 17-18, 2020, at Greensboro College in Greensboro, NC. Registration for this event is now closed.
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.
