Stage Managers needed!

New Ideas Festival (NIF) is Alumnae Theatre Company’s annual three-week juried festival of new short plays, works-in-progress, and experimental theatre, with a different program each week and a workshopped reading on Saturdays at noon. The 2017 festival will run from March 8 to 26, 2017. new-ideas-2017-image
