Women’s Theatre Festival Expands to Include WTFCon and WTFringe

imageThis year, Women’s Theatre Festival is expanding its annual Festival, adding an educational conference and fringe series. From July 12-14, theatre and arts enthusiasts will convene in Raleigh, NC to experience groundbreaking theatrical performances and engage with a range of
programming that addresses the need for equity in theatre and provides training for artists at all stages.

imageWTFCon will include keynote speeches and conversations between writers, actors, designers, and producers on topics ranging from the basics of sound design to legalese for creatives, and from producing your own work to mastering your audition. WTF wants attendees to leave WTFCon with actionable tools for career growth.

WTFringe will feature experimental, innovative, and collaborative works, pushing the boundaries of style and subject matter. There will be representation from all genders, all ages, all abilities, all races, and all bodies. Each selected production will receive a $100 micro-grant. The final component of this year’s Festival is the perennial favorite, Occupy The Stage–24 hours of staged reading of plays by women.

To make WTFest 2019 a reality, WTF needs you! You can submit session proposals for WTFCon here and production proposals for WTFringe here. For more information or to get involved, email WTF.
