Focus Groups A-D: American Theatre and Drama Society

For more information about the American Theatre and Drama Society, click here to send an e-mail to the ATDS leadership.

The American Theatre and Drama Society (ATDS) is an independent 501 3 C corporation dedicated to the study of the United States theatre and drama, its varied histories, traditions, literatures, and performances within its cultural contexts. ATDS also encourages the evolving debate exploring national identities and experiences through research, pedagogy, and practice. ATDS recognizes that notions of America and the U.S. encompass migrations of peoples and cultures that overlap and influence one another. To this end, ATDS welcomes scholars, teachers, and practitioners world-wide.
