INDIVIDUAL EVENTS: Individual Events give Thespians (must be a thespian) the opportunity to receive constructive feedback on prepared theatrical material and technical designs. If a student achieves overall Superiors at the Michigan Thespian Festival, they will have the opportunity to go the National Festival (not required) for further adjudication.
ONLY DIRECTOR CAN REGISTER STUDENTS FOR INDIVIDUAL EVENTS ON REGISTRATION FORM.
WORKSHOPS: Workshops are a valuable learning opportunity for students and teachers. Workshops on all aspects of theatre practice are offered both days of our festival. With many workshops to choose from, delegates can dabble in anything from costumes and makeup to safe stage combat to singing, acting, dancing, and improv. Delegates do not have to sign-up for workshops. They may attend any that they wish and may decide on-site.
Workshop schedule will be available on Guidebook a few weeks prior to festival.
SHOWS: Troupes will put in an application form to bring a show to Festival. The deadline is September 25th, 2019. Interview will take place in person or via phone on Saturday, September 28th. Please be available. New troupe attendees are not eligible to bring a show their first year, nor are troupes that brought a show the previous year. Performances of mainstage shows will be at the beautiful Music Hall.
TRANSPORTATION: Troupes will be responsible for getting to the venue.
Each delegate will receive a 2-day unlimited ride pass for the people mover. There will be people mover maps included in troupe bags.
