It was truly and eye-opening, influential, and inspiring experience. Not only did I learn the tricks of the trade, but I also didn't expect that there are so many others like myself who have creative and innovative ideas for theatre and are looking to make the most of the opportunities that come our way. I will definitely keep in touch with you as well as those I networked with over the weekend.
I went last year and it was life and career changing. The inspiration from it has kept me going for months with actionable steps forward to take each day. I’ve just signed up for this year!
Through the Super Conference I learned about resources that really pivoted the play.
WHAT IS THE THEATER MAKERS SUMMIT
Founded by Tony Award-winning Broadway Producer, Ken Davenport, The Theater Makers Summit is a gathering of the world’s top theatrical talent for a weekend of education, inspiration, and connection. In 2020, our conference will be held virtually for theater professionals across the globe to attend from the safety of their homes.
Broadway is changing, which has ripple effects for the theatrical community across the country and even the world. At The TheaterMakers Summit, hundreds of the world’s smartest creators will gather online to learn about the current state of the theater and how to make theater in a new world.
If you’re an actor, director, producer, playwright, or theatre professional then The TheaterMakers Summit is YOUR event. Welcome home.

Perfect for Playwrights of all levels wanting to know how to get their script in top shape, in the hands of people who can make a difference in your career, and on a stage.
Perfect for Producers who are wanting to learn how to find projects that will succeed, bring together a team, and get a show all the way to Broadway and beyond.
Perfect for Actors who are wanting a deeper understanding of the business of Broadway and connections with industry professionals who could advance their career.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Join hundreds of the world’s top theatre-makers for a 2-day conference full of actionable content from experts (and several Tony Award-Winners) that have been in your shoes and turned their careers into what dreams are made of. This year’s conference will have a special focus on creating theater in a new world and how we can safely create a more inclusive experience for audiences and creators.
You’ll hear from A-list industry insiders who are actively working in the theater today and get insights into the business you won’t find anywhere else.
You’ll walk away on Sunday with notebooks full of action items guaranteed to take your show or career to the next stage.
If you’ve ever felt (or currently feel) stuck, demotivated by the quarantine, or like you’ve been spinning your wheels trying to break through and can’t seem to get to where you want to be . . . then this is the place to find the inspiration you need to succeed.
Because it’s hard to create art and keep your dreams moving forward without at least an annual jolt of inspiration, and at The TheaterMakers Summit, you’ll get enough theatre-adrenaline to last you all year.
CONNECTION & ENTERTAINMENT
The TheaterMakers Summit is a theater event like no other. With 500+ attendees and speakers expected to attend virtually, you’ll meet people who have been in your shoes, who have faced the same challenges you have, and who have overcome the same obstacles.
With virtual video breakout sessions and special networking rooms, attendees will be able to meet other theater makers face-to-face. Attendees can also create their own themed virtual networking rooms to discuss topics on their mind, and even invite individuals for one-on-one video conversations. No more chasing people down in halls, with the click of a button you can connect in your own living room.
You’ll be among your people with Playwrights, Producers, Actors, Directors, Artistic Staff, and other professionals and fans from across the globe to attend one of the largest virtual gatherings of theater professionals in existence.
