One non-Festival Announcement:
- The R4 webpage creator/coordinator, Thomas Adkins, works at the Theatre Development Fund. TDF has an online magazine that is great for students. Below is information about it. Please pass this on to your students.
- TDF StagesÂ is a free online magazine dedicated to exploring how theatre and dance are created. We speak to performers, directors, writers, designers, and producers about the choices they make as they put their work on stage, and this leads to uniquely illuminating insights.
- TDF Stages,Â an ongoing project ofÂ Theatre Development Fund, is especially valuable for students who want to learn how top professionals transform their ideas and training in living, breathing art.
- Recently, TDF has spoken to prominent artists like composer Michael John LaChiusa, actors Michael Urie and Marin Ireland, playwright Theresa Rebeck, and director Sam Gold.
