The theatrical event of the season will be held at the Verona Area High School Performing Arts Center in Verona.  Being that it's an even numbered year, our emphasis will be on workshops and training. Plus the usual social and networking events.  So Join us.





Friday evening there will be an informal gathering at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel.   It will be an opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet new ones.  Registration packets will also be available for pickup.




Saturday will be a full day of activities. The day will begin at 9:00 AM at the Verona Area High School Performing Arts Center with the first of the days workshop sessions. Lunch will be included in your registration and provided onsite, giving everyone a chance to compare notes and attend WACT’s Annual Meeting. After lunch, workshops will continue throughout the afternoon.  Dinner is on your own at any of a number of area restaurants.  In the evening will be an adjudicated performance of the Verona Area Community Theatre's production of Heaven Can Wait.  Afterwards will be a combined cast party and reception at the Verona Area Community Theatre's building.
