We are now accepting proposals for conference sessions! As in past years the Planning Committee would like to run concurrent sessions to offer attendees a wide range of sessions to match their interests. That’s where you come in! Here is your chance to help support and promote solid First Person performance.

Topics can include any area of interest: theatricality, improvisation, research and development, involving your volunteers, creating excitement, dealing with visitors, marketing, training and costuming….whatever you have to offer! Not sure what to present about? Here are our suggestions.

Please submit an email to: ashellenbean@strawberybanke.org
with the following information:

Name, Address, Institutional Affiliation (if any), Phone,
