Our Mission
The North Carolina Theatre Arts Educators seeks to advance the quality and scope of theatre education in North Carolina schools through professional development, collaboration, and empowerment of Theatre Arts Educators

September 26, 2020

We had such a wonderful showing at Fall Sharing 2019 at Pinecrest High School in Southern Pines, NC. Each workshop was dynamic and exciting, the vendors and guest were helpful and engaging, and the company was simply marvelous!  2020 has been a trying year, and it is important for teachers to be able to connect in some way.  We will be hosting our 23rd annual Fall Sharing ONLINE September 26th.  We may need to physically distance, not necessarily socially distance, thanks to technology.  We thank all members, presenters, sponsors, guest speakers and volunteers who make this event possible!

April 4, 2020

With the closing of UNC System Colleges and field trips being put on hold indefinitely in quite a few communities, we made the decision to cancel the NC Young Playwright's Festival on April 4th.
We are so proud of all of our young playwrights and teachers. We will move forward with celebrating them through local press releases and emails to their administration. We will, also, be sending the book of plays through the mail to our Outstanding and Honorable Mention Playwrights. If you are interested in purchasing one, we will make that available as well.
