Welcome to the Educational Theatre Association Hall of Fame. Established in 1990, the Hall of Fame recognizes those members who have made outstanding contributions to theatre education for twenty or more years, and induction represents the highest honor awarded by the Educational Theatre Association to theatre educators. Every year we induct new members at the EdTA National Conference and celebrate the impact they have had in shaping lives through theatre education.
