Call for Proposals

There is so much history on display in Philadelphia, and we'll try to see as much as we can, but, just because this is a conference about historic theatres, it doesn't mean we don't have something to say about the here and now. 

We want to showcase best practices from around North America for restoring, maintaining and operating historic theatres.  Please consider presenting about your incredible restoration, your inspiring story of survival against all odds, or even that amazing event you just produced.  In 2019 it's once again about showcasing What Makes Really Successful Historic Theatres Really Successful?  And don't forget, sometimes that means learning about what didn't work.

The League of Historic American Theatres Annual Conference -- the only national gathering of theatre professionals focusing on opportunities and challenges facing historic theatres – seeks theatre managers, historic theatre board and staff leaders, service providers and other content experts to submit proposals for sessions for the Annual Conference to be held in Philadelphia, PA, July 14-17, 2019 (Sun-Wed).

Sessions can be in the form of panel discussions, hands-on workshops, case study presentations, research presentations, or facilitated training sessions.

Conference participants will be historic theatre professionals looking for best practices or emerging ideas in the field of saving, restoring, maintaining or managing/operating historic theatres.

If chosen, presenters must register for the conference. LHAT does not provide travel or lodging but does advance any member discounts otherwise available regardless of membership status of presenter. Priority is given to members when similar proposals are being considered.
