The Mission of the Shakespeare Theatre Association is to provide a forum for the artistic, managerial, and educational leadership of theatres primarily involved in the production of the works of William Shakespeare; to discuss issues and methods of work, resources, and information; and to act as an advocate for Shakespearean productions and training.

The sessions and programs at the STA conference are designed for senior staff and leadership of our Member Organizations. Examples include, but are not limited to Artistic Directors, Managing Directors, Executive Directors, Education Directors, Board Members, Development Directors, PR/Marketing Directors, Associate Artistic Directors, etc. Each Member Organization of STA is unique, and it is up to each individual theatre to decide who will benefit most from the professional development opportunities offered at the conference and how many should represent their organization.
