Initiated high school Thespians in grades 9-12, their Troupe Directors, and chaperone(s) are welcomed at the conference. All delegates are expected to attend all conference activities.
All students must be chaperoned by an adult for the entire conference.
Because the conference is an educational event for high school students and their teachers and is bound by seating limitations, participation in all events will be available only to Thespian troupes who have registered by the registration cut-off date.
Registration includes four meals: dinner on Thursday, lunch and dinner on Friday, and lunch on Saturday.
Show Ticketing Procedures
Thespian troupes will submit requests for tickets to the shows through an online form that will be available on the Troupe Director's page starting in January before conference. Directors should complete the form online using the link on the Thespian website.
Ticket orders will be filled in the order that the forms are received. If a show is sold out, that show will no longer be offered on the form. If a director requests tickets for a show that is sold out, the director will be notified via email and allowed to make a second choice.
The ticketing form will be available January 11-14, 2016. A confirmation email will be sent to the the troupe director by January 18, 2016.
Tickets will be divided up and included in the director's packet at Thespian Conference registration. If changes need to be made at Thespian Conference, a Ticket Exchange table will be available for directors to switch tickets. The Ticket Exchange table will be open Thursday and Friday in the Lobby of the Trade Center.
