About ASTC

The American Society of Theatre Consultants (ASTC) was founded on the premise of creating a forum for collaboration and a vehicle for sharing member’s knowledge and experiences of design and technologies for the performing arts, entertainment and theatre industries.

An organization where theatre consultants from around the United States and Canada can contribute new and traditional ideas with the goal of developing entertainment, educational, ecclesiastical and business facilities for future generations.
