24rd Annual Theatre Seminar
Theatre Museum of Repertoire Americana
Mt. Pleasant, Iowa
April 17, 18, and 19, 2009
The Theatre Museum of Repertoire Americana invites submissions for papers, performances, or panel discussions that explore the sites and sounds of rural American entertainment forms. We particularly encourage submissions relating to tent shows, circle stock, showboats, Lyceum, and Chautauqua, but also welcome submissions about such topics as minstrelsy, circus, vaudeville, repertoire, Uncle Tomís Cabin Shows, minstrelsy, and freak shows. The conference is open to anyone interested in theatre history, performance, popular culture, or any other aspect of rural entertainment. It features theatre historians, popular culturalists, former troupers, intriguing research, lively discussion, and performances.
A $100 scholarship will be awarded to the best paper presented by a college student or a graduate student.
Please submit proposals by Feb. 15 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
