Join Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast for a lively discussion with Ashley Teague, visiting director with the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training, on Wednesday, February 14 from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm. Teague will explore the concept of theatre as an opportunity to be in conversation with an audience. Theatre can lift up ideas for change and hold up worlds we’ve never seen before. Teague believes the final moment of any play does not happen on the stage, it happens in the hearts and minds of the audience.
Conservation Foundation is pleased to have Ashley Teague at Bay Preserve as an Artist-in-Residence, in collaboration with FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training. The program will be held at the foundation’s headquarters at Bay Preserve, 400 Palmetto Avenue in Osprey. Reserve online at www.conservationfoundation.com/teague or call (941) 918-2100 as seating is limited. Teague is directing The Rehearsal at FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training.
