The creative minds at Synchronicity Theatre have cooked up a plan to continue one of their most prominent traditions – COVID or no COVID.

Just the Facts

The “smart, gutsy, bold” company will host their 17th Women in the Arts and Business Luncheon at noon on Thursday, June 25.

Themed “Dynamic Journeys: Paving the Way,” the event will honor Sonya Halpern (Principal, WIAT Consulting) and Ariel Fristoe (Artistic Director of Out of Hand Theater) and will be moderated by Synchronicity’s Producing Artistic Director Rachel May.

According to the Synchronicity team

“Because of shelter-in-place restrictions, and out of concern for the health and safety of participants, this year’s event will be a virtual panel discussion live-streamed from the Synchronicity Annex. The online audience will have an opportunity to ask questions and engage live via the registration link.

The networking component, one of the key opportunities the event has come to be known for, will be in the form of breakout sessions, and will be an interactive element offered during the event.”
