The mission of Theatre Event Academy is to connect and improve the theatre and live event industries by offering quality training, resources and advocacy for theatre professionals looking to cultivate a career in live events.

We provide opportunities for theatre educators, students & professionals to broaden skill sets and increase awareness of available career paths in the live event industry. At the same time, we partner with event industry suppliers and management groups to champion the benefits of employing theatre professionals & provide them with a direct line to potential employees through our workshops, speaking engagements and other activities. This comprehensive approach creates a connected and knowledgeable community of successful event professionals.


Theatre Event Academy will:
  • Ensure that all students of technical theatre, design and stage management understand the diverse prospects their education has prepared them for and how to seek employment in the various industries for which they are trained.

  • Expand awareness of theatre educators regarding the employment options available to their students outside of a traditional theatre setting.

  • Provide theatre professionals with tools, support and opportunities to develop a career in the live event industry.

  • Connect event industry suppliers and management groups with potential employees who are effective, capable and ready to succeed.

  • Foster an environment of collaboration, constant improvement and mutual understanding between the theatre and live event industries.
