Summer Theatre Fest is now Quarantine Theatre Fest
For the past seven years, the South Florida Theatre League has run Summer Theatre Fest, an audience development program, where member theatres host readings of new plays by local playwrights on Monday nights from June to August. Due to the need for social distancing because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the League has had to adjust how we can aid our community and continue to engage audiences.
Therefore in 2020, Summer Theatre Fest will become Quarantine Theatre Fest, where the South Florida Theatre League will heavily promote our member organizations online offerings throughout the month of July and host multiple professional development opportunities for both artists and arts administrators.
All of the South Florida Theatre League workshops that are a part of Quarantine Theatre Fest have already happened, but we will be bringing you more virtual workshops soon.
Join the South Florida Theatre League as we honor the unsung heroes of the South Florida Theatre Community.
Our full press release is available here.
