TodayTix Next Generation Series – Friday, April 29, 2016

Special thanks to our Next Generation Series Partners: iO Improv, Greenhouse Theater Center, Victory Gardens Theater, and Lyft.

At the TodayTix Next Generation Series, college theater students had the opportunity to meet with some of our city’s most celebrated industry professionals, while building new friendships with creative peers.

Students attended workshops at Victory Gardens Theater and Greenhouse Theater Center, engaged in an interactive panel moderated by Chris Jones, met other young theatermakers at our mixer, and ended the day with The Improvised Shakespeare Company at iO Improv.
