The Professional Theatre and Educators Round-Table
|Three years ago participants in the Production Managers
Forum, a group made up primarily of League of Resident Theatre (LORT) production managers,
identified two distinct problems. The number of applicants for entry-level positions has
been decreasing. Also, many of these applicants do not have appropriate skills to perform
in the position they are seeking. These issues were the impetus for the Professional
Theatre and Educators Round-Table sessions held at the Long Beach and Toronto USITT
On Saturday March 25, 2000, at the Denver USITT Conference, the third Round-Table session will include students, educators and production managers. We will explore the interests of the students, the objectives of the educators and the realities and needs of the profession as expressed by the production managers. The session will focus on information gained from those who participate in this survey.
