GUEST ARTIST WORKSHOP SUBMISSION
Texas Thespians are very excited to invite you to be a teaching guest artist at our State conference November 15-17, 2017 at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine! I have provided all pertinent information below.
Workshop registration opens August 1, 2017. Once we have all requests, we will begin to build our workshop schedule. FIRST COME FIRST SERVE, so be sure to get all requests in no later than September 30, the FINAL deadline. Confirmation of workshop times and schedules will be sent out no later than October 27, 2017. On this date any changes or modifications are subject to the cancellation policy below.
As a reminder: To create as much variety as possible, we do not present the same workshop more than 3 or 4 times. If you want to teach a full weekend, you will need to submit multiple forms and titles. Please know that we will help you create the most enticing workshop titles, if need be. We want your workshops to be well-attended!
