CITA conferences bring together theatre professionals, drama ministers, educators and
everyone in between. Incorporated in 1989, CITA is
a non-profit organization dedicated to the service of Christians involved in theatre and
related arts. The annual Summer Networking Conference provides scores of workshops and
performances led by some of the best Christians involved in the performing arts. Past
presenters include Jeannette Clift George, Paul and Nicole Johnson, and
playwright Gil Elvgren.
Script and performance companies, colleges
& universities, and drama ministries set up displays each year. New play readings,
auditions for positions with member theatre companies, and lots of fellowship time make a
CITA National Conference a revitalizing experience.
Previous conference cities include San
Francisco, Houston, Chicago, Minneapolis, San Diego, St. Louis and Seattle.
