Music Theatre International Seeks Feedback on New Web Site

Posted July 22, 2009

Recently, the American Association of Community Theaters held their annual Festival in Tacoma, Washington. The Theater Association of New York State (TANYS) is a member organization of AACT, and has sent out this informative bulletin that I am pleased to share with you!

We hope you enjoyed the AACT Festival in Tacoma as much as we did. The Festival was a great opportunity to share our different theatrical experiences and also address the critical issues facing our industry. For those AACT members who couldn't make it this time around we hope to see you next year.
