Is this your first Conclave Theatre Tour, or are you a long-time attendee looking to brush up? Here are the THS tips for making this upcoming Conclave your best.

Dress for tour days is casual.
Comfortable walking shoes are a must for the week, especially since Friday and part of Thursday, is a walking tour. Make sure to bring a light jacket or sweater for the deeply chilled air conditioned theatres we’ll visit. We also recommend a small umbrella this year.

Time in each theater.
When we arrive at each venue, we’ll be greeted by our host theatre and treated to a brief history of the building. After the presentation, you’ll be free to explore the building for the remaining time.

Bring your camera.
With unprecedented access to buildings, this is the perfect time to take photos for your own collection. Cameras are encouraged, and you won’t be the only one with a tripod or monopod.

Merchandise.
Do you like the Conclave Theatre Tour graphic? Once we have it ready, you’ll be able to visit Cafepress to purchase it on a number of different items.

Receptions and evening activities.
When it comes to evening activities and receptions, some people like to dress to the nines, and some like to keep it business casual, but in general, we do like a “sharp looking” crowd. Just make sure you’re comfortable. For both receptions, as well as the Andy Warhol Museum, please note that cash bars will be available.

Silent Auction.
We’ve got a number of great items to auction off at the Opening Night Reception donated by members and businesses across the country. From theatre memorabilia to gift cards for local restaurants, we’ve got something to strike your fancy. We take credit cards and cash!

2016 Conclave location.
As an attendee of the current Conclave, you’re also the first to find out where we’re going next. We’ve started signing the contracts here at the office and are bursting at the seams waiting to tell you. Save the date cards will be waiting for you in your welcome bag. We know you’ll be as excited as we are!

The “official” schedule.

We’ll update the official schedule at historictheatres.org along the way. Please note that things can change up until we arrive for Conclave, but we try to let everyone know if major changes occur.

Conclave Group Photo.We always take a group photo at Conclave Theatre Tour and we’ll let you know what venue it will be at in the pocket schedule. Once it’s taken, we’ll upload it to Flickr for you to purchase directly.
