College & Career Fair for the Arts 2021: Resilience and Change

Saturday, March 20
10am-3pm
Fully Virtual

Artists are some of the most resilient and innovative people on the planet. This year, we invite current high school students, their parents/guardians, and high school educators to join us for a unique career fair celebrating the future of theatre and the arts.

This free, fully virtual event will help arts-interested students look ahead, to college and beyond. The Fair will feature both interactive live sessions, and prerecorded sessions available for viewing at any time. Attendees will also have access to free, virtual college counseling, the opportunity to chat with theatre artists in small groups, and a college fair with information about local and national higher education options.
