Wisconsin Directors Lab

January 4-5, 2025
Madison College

We are excited to announce our establishment of a Wisconsin Directors Lab (“The Lab”), which will support education, artistic exploration, career development, and networking for early- and mid-career theater directors in our state.

The Lab will launch in January 2025, with an in-person event hosted by in-kind partner Madison College. This weekend gathering will run January 4-5, 2025 and include panel discussions, breakout seminars, open rehearsals, and networking sessions led by some of the state’s most experienced professional directors.

Admission to the Lab will be open to all Wisconsin residents, with modest sliding-scale fees charged to cover the cost of meals and other services during The Lab. Aspiring and working directors throughout the state are encouraged to attend, whether they are interested in working in theater in professional, community, or educational settings.

The Wisconsin Directors Lab is supported by funds from Forward Theater Company, a grant from the Madison Community Foundation, and Nancy Ciezki & Diane Kostecke. Madison College is the Lab’s in-kind sponsor.
