High school theatre teachers participate in a workshop at the 2008 Theatre Day for Teachers.

Following the tremendous success of last year’s Theatre Day for Teachers, the day-long professional development program for high school theatre teachers, Montclair State will host the 2nd Annual Theatre Day for Teachers on January 9 in Life Hall. The event provides a rare opportunity for high school theatre teachers to meet and network with their peers, and to participate in stimulating workshops taught by theatre professionals, Montclair State faculty, and experienced high school teachers.

After the day’s activities, the first Theatre Night Awards ceremony will be held at 7:00 p.m. in Memorial Auditorium. Founded to honor the best in high school drama, the Theatre Night Awards will feature entertainment by Montclair State alumni as well as highlights from the high school shows nominated for Best Production. Awards will be presented to high school students and teachers who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in all areas of theatrical performance, design, and production.

The Theatre Night Awards ceremony is open to the public and tickets are $20.00 at the door.
