AR EdTA Social Media Policy
As Thespians, we recognize that social media is a useful tool for expanding our theatre knowledge and for recognizing ourselves and others in a positive manner, and that our words and images are not only a reflection of ourselves, but our peers, programs, directors, and the general theatre community.
