Editor’s Notes on the Atlanta Issue

Welcome to our first regional edition since the COVID-19 shutdowns began. Since many of the theatres listed here have reopened for in-person rehearsals and performances, we felt comfortable creating it. These issues give us an opportunity to celebrate regionally specific institutions while also introducing resources to members who live outside that area.

The Atlanta-Metro area is a culturally rich part of the country, home to about 200 Guild members and resources. We hope you enjoy reading some first-hand accounts of the Georgia based organizations from some of your peers.

Special thanks to our DG Reps and Ambassadors, both past and present, and generous Guild members for their contributions to this issue. We hope this issue piques your curiosity for learning more about the theatrical landscape in Atlanta.

If you don’t find what you’re looking for, I want to encourage you to check out our online Resource Directory. Our staff works hard, constantly updating our information and submission deadlines, as well as adding hundreds of new organizations and opportunities each year. If you find something out of date or missing, please let us know!

One of my favorite features on the DG website is our Submission Calendar. Click on a submission like the Annual Risk Theatre Modern Tragedy Playwriting Competition (deadline May 31) and you’ll find more information. This calendar also gets updated constantly, and we hope you’ll let us know if you find any errors.

Check out our How To Use section to learn more. Can’t access our website? Join the Guild! Our online Resource Directory is just one of the many great benefits to membership.
