Theatre Conference Celebrates 18th Year

The eighteenth annual Last Frontier Theatre Conference in Valdez is just a couple of weeks away. This year's event is being touted by organizers as "a celebration of theatre of all levels," and an "opportunity for professionals, amateurs and all levels in between to celebrate the craft." It's also an opportunity for playwrights to showcase their work and for theater buffs to participate in classes, readings, workshops and other daytime events. Valdez audiences can choose from an extensive lineup of feature-length productions and short plays, and for the first time this year, a completely local production.

Conference coordinator Dawson Moore of Prince William Sound Community College says about 285 plays were submitted for consideration this year. Of those, 54 plays, varying in length from 20 minutes to two hours, will be produced during the week-long conference. And a total of 18 panelists will provide critique of the Alaska productions and collaborations originating outside the state.

Moore discussed the conference, which kicks off May 16th, earlier this week on KCHU's Coffee Break with host, Matt Lorenz:
