The Fort Lewis College Theatre is proud to host the 2009 Rocky Mountain Theatre Association Festival on February 4, 5, 6, and 7. During the four-day event, conference attendees will participate in hands-on workshops covering all aspects of theatre production including directing, acting, design, stage management, criticism, playwriting, and more. The event also includes scholarship and employment auditions and competitions in acting, design, musical theatre, and theatre technology.
