AACT Webinars
Convenient, relevant, informative

Computer keyboard with a key marked "Webinar"AACT webinars are presentations or workshops, transmitted over the Web, using a video conferencing app, and featuring knowledgeable experts. In many cases, participants may submit questions to the presenters in advance of the webinar itself. 

In fall 2020, AACT began offering a series of online courses for actors, directors, theatre educators, and administrators, with an emphasis on enhancing skills and expanding perspective.  These affordable webinars will continue in 2021, delivering superior professional/vocational development with no travel costs.
