Your 2020 STO's
FOOD: Food is not included in registration. Here is a comprehensive list of restaurants and hours within the Marriott and over the walkway at Millender Center. There will also be food available at Cobo.
SCHOLARSHIP: Scholarship Information
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.
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.
