TodayTix Next Generation Series – Boston – Sunday, March 26, 2017

This spring at the New Generation Series in Boston, students had the opportunity to hear from industry professionals and share their work with their peers.

The day started with lunch and a panel of industry professionals who shared their expertise and vision of the future of theater, and concluded with four different student groups taking to the stage to share pieces of their upcoming projects.

Special thanks to our committee members and panelists for all of their work making this event happen!

Here’s a look at our Sunday in Boston:
