Join us in California May 3-6, 2017!


One Theatre World is the most significant gathering of theatre for young audiences professionals in North America presented by Theatre for Young Audiences/USA, featuring performances, juried breakout sessions (workshops and discussions), master classes, a keynote address, special events, and networking opportunities.

One Theatre World 2017 will take place starting the evening of Wednesday May 3 and ending the afternoon of Saturday May 6, 2017 in various locations in San Fransisco, Berkeley, and Oakland, California. Bay Area Children’s Theatre is hosting this year’s gathering.

This year’s theme is Innovate/Activate.

innovate: to introduce something new; make changes to anything established.

activate: to make active; cause to function or act (to do something; exert energy or force).

We believe these words capture the spirit of the Bay Area, this year’s exciting host locale. We also believe they capture the spirit of the performances, events, and sessions (presented by you) we will all experience together. Finally, we believe you will be inspired to activate your own innovations as we continue to energize the field for our young audiences and families.
