Rep Stage Announces Seventh Annual Free and Virtual Women+ in Theatre Conference

Rep Stage, the regional professional theatre in residence at Howard Community College, will host the seventh annual free and virtual conference dedicated to women-identifying, transgender and gender nonconforming theatre practitioners on Saturday, August 20, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The conference provides women+ professionals working in theatre the opportunity to network and share experiences of the joys and challenges of returning to live performance during the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, the conference focuses on the theme of re-engagement, and hosts keynote speaker, Peggy McKowen, artistic director of Contemporary American Theatre Festival.

In addition to the keynote address, the conference will feature a session in which participants can share their re-engagement experiences in discipline-based breakout rooms. Shirley's speed-networking session, dedicated to the memory of our committee member, Dr. Shirley Basfield Dunlap, will again be offered, as well as a panel of designers. The day will conclude with virtual staged readings of the 10-minute play contest winners, followed by a talk-back with the playwrights.

The conference is free, but registration is required. To register for the conference, visit:®id=29& For further information, visit the Rep Stage website at:
