RomeroFest

In collaboration with The Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre and Winding Road Theater Ensemble, ATC is producing RomeroFest, a month-long celebration of the diverse, thoughtful and impactful works of ATC Playwright-in-Residence Elaine Romero with digital performances by theatre companies across the U.S. and in Mexico in March.

Among the theatre companies presenting Romero’s work virtually, either live or by video, are ATC, The Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre (Tucson); Winding Road Theatre Ensemble (Tucson); Foro Shakespeare (Mexico City); Artists Repertory Theatre (Portland, OR); Seven Devils Playwrights Conference (New York); Colorado College (Colorado Springs); The Justice Theater Project (Raleigh, NC); The School of Theatre, Film and Television, University of Arizona; Teatro Milagro (Portland, OR); InterAct Theatre Company (Philadelphia); and Theatre Ariel (Philadelphia). A full list of plays and when they will be available will be announced in mid-February.

The Festival opens March 1 at 5 p.m. with a digital “Scholar Kickoff” featuring a town hall-type panel discussion about Elaine’s work and its impact.

Opening event panelists include Dr. Anne Garcia-Romero, Associate Professor, University of Notre Dame; Dr. David Crespy, Professor of Playwriting, Acting, Dramatic Literature and Theatre History at the University of Missouri, Columbia; and Dr. Jimmy Noriega, Associate Professor in the Theatre and Dance Department at Wooster College. The panel will be moderated by Tanya Palmer, Associate Professor, Head, MFA in Dramaturgy at Indiana University Department of Theatre, Drama & Contemporary Dance.
