PACTcon2018 holds something for you, whether you’re new to your position or a seasoned theatre veteran; we welcome artists, creators, managers, and administrators from theatre companies of all shapes and sizes across the country. Our conference is consistently identified as inspiring and rejuvenating, and we invite you to come and add your voice to the conversation.
