Event Ticketing Procedures
Workshop Ticket Selection will be open from January 22-25.
During this time Troupe Directors will select the number of tickets for the Workshops, Individual Events, and COLLIDE opportunities students would like to participate in at conference.
Students will have more than 20 options of workshops and Individual Events to select from. All workshops will be offered in Workshop Sessions 1-5.
Musical Theatre Individual Events will only be offered during Sessions 1-4.
Acting Individual Events will only be offered during Sessions 1-3.
Troupes may not sign up for more than the following quantities per event per session:
Acting Individual Events: 20 Tickets
Musical Theatre Individual Events: 20 Tickets
Workshops: 15 Tickets
Ticket requests for each Session MUST MATCH the total number of attendees per troupe per session.
Example: Troupe A has 21 attendees registered for conference. In session 1, the tickets for School A may be split up amongst any of the 20 workshops or Individual Events. The final total for School A’s tickets in Session 1 should match up to 21.
