Welcome to the Delaware Theater Association!

The Delaware Theater Association (DTA) is an organization founded to support performance arts in Delaware. Delaware is part of the Eastern States Theater Association,Inc. (ESTA) which, in turn, is Region II of the American Association of Community Theaters (AACT).

What is DTA?

Delaware Theatre Association is a resource for member theaters providing them networking assistance and serving as an advocate for their community theater to other state arts organizations.

DTA sponsors and promotes an annual One Act Festival showing off the best and brightest of the Delaware community theater scene. The festival is scheduled to include: winning productions from each member theater, performance adjudication by experienced people, and opportunities to network with people from other theaters and states. The winner of the annual DTAFest moves on for additional competition, adjudication and networking at the ESTA regional level.

Thank You!

DTA thanks Rick Neidig and all the participants at "Let There Be Light" for an outstanding workshop on theatrical lighting! Photographs from the workshop, which took place on August 24, 2013, at The Tatnall School, are available on our Workshop page.
