Thespians coming to fieldhouse

After hosting sports championships and ESPN events, you’d think that the AdventHealth Fieldhouse and Conference Center would be running out of firsts.

The upcoming 2021 Florida Theatre Conference will call Winter Haven home from Nov. 11-13, 2021, marking the first large-scale full buyout conference recruited by PCTSM at the AdventHealth Fieldhouse and Conference Center. More than 1,000 attendees are expected for four days for an economic impact of $1.2 million.

The annual four-day conference was recruited by PCTSM. It will present high school, youth, middle school and community theatre play festivals as well as the DraMature and Inclusion festival showcases.  More than 65 workshops are offered, with focus areas including singing, acting, dance, stage combat, directing, playwriting and all technical areas of the stage. There will also be an FTC College fair, where students may audition for higher education representatives from across the nation.
