INTERNATIONAL THESPIAN FESTIVAL
The International Thespian Festival (ITF) offers a full schedule of workshops presented by theatre professionals, individual performance events, a student play-writing program, and opportunities for juniors (rising seniors) to audition for colleges. Students of all grade levels have the opportunity to meet with college representatives from around the country. Recently graduated seniors may also apply for Thespian scholarships. Additionally, the Thespian Festival features more than fifty productions presented by schools from throughout North America and abroad.
ITF is a valuable experience for all students, especially those interested in pursuing performing arts in college. It is especially beneficial for rising seniors due to the opportunity to audition for several schools in one location. Schools have been known to waive their application fees if they are interested in a specific student. Additionally, students who qualified for ITF at the Regional Thespy Festival in January, have the opportunity to audition their qualified selection (each student can only perform 1 piece) for adjudication and the opportunity to perform in the Thespy Award Showcase.
