Drama for Schools Symposium

Given the urgency of the situation regarding COVID-19, the recommendations from leadership at The University of Texas at Austin, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Drama for Schools Symposium. This is event has been rescheduled for June 3-5, 2021. Updates will be posted as that information becomes available. Should you have specific questions or concerns, please contact Lara Dossett at laradossett@utexas.edu for further information.
