Free panel discussion about theater technology
The public is invited to a free panel discussion and question-and-answer session focused on developing trends of embracing new theatrical works and theater in technology. The discussion takes place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1, at the Lake Dillon Theatre, and panelists will include El Armstrong, a Colorado-based video and sound designer-director; and a representative from the Buntport Theatre of Denver.
“Theatrical arts, as in any other field, develop regularly and relate directly to the needs of a community,” said Tim Pare, Lake Dillon Theatre Company director of education. “It is important to maintain a relevancy not only within your community, but with the community at large. Our Panel Discussion series allows us to share our efforts to accomplish this mission and to allow our supporters to inspire us to stay current.”
Adult arts education is a valued component of the Lake Dillon Theatre Company mission.
“The panel discussions allow us to invite directors, playwrights, actors, designers, educators, administrators and critics from around the state to Dillon to engage in discussions about theater and the performing arts with members of our community,” said Josh Blanchard, executive director of the theatre company. “The diverse perspectives and experiences among panelists offer our patrons and us staff new and exciting insights beyond the work we are doing at the LDTC.”
The discussion is free, and tickets or reservations are not necessary. The discussion will be held at the theater at 176 Lake Dillon Drive, and doors will open at 10:30 a.m. For more information, visit www.lakedillontheatre.org or call (970) 513-9386.
