72nd Annual Convention – Memphis, TN

SETC is closely monitoring COVID-19 and its impacts on the theatre industry. At this time, we have made the decision to pause our workshop application process as we explore a new, alternative programming format for our 2021 Convention that will allow us to continue providing new and safe opportunities in theatre while protecting the health of SETC members. Please know that we will do our best to inform you in a timely manner of any additional changes to the 2021 convention.

If you have questions regarding workshops, please email Bradley Branham, SETC Program Manager, at
