Send a Troupe



The International Thespian Society is very proud that our annual Thespian Festival is the premier international event for high school theatre. More than 2,500 students travel from all over the country, and even overseas, to attend this amazing week. The Festival is an exciting and inclusive theatrical experience that can change a student’s life; perhaps such an experience even changed yours! We know that it can be very expensive to attend Festival. Many Thespian troupes that would benefit greatly are never able to attend and we are asking for your help. Since 2012, we have sent three troupes to Festival, and for Festival 2014 we'd like to send two more! Your donation will help us send two deserving troupes to Festival-including all travel and registration expenses.

Your donation will be one of many that help us raise at least $20,000 to send at least two deserving Thespian troupes to Festival 2014. We will cover all travel and basic registration expenses. The troupe selected through this program will be one that has never attended Festival and can demonstrate financial barriers from attending. With your help we can give a Thespian troupe the amazing gift of the Festival experience!

The application for the Send A Troupe to Festival grant is now available.

Once in Lincoln, the students of this troupe will be able to:
  • Watch performances on four stages
  • Discover their potential in our student leadership program
  • Audition for college admissions and Thespian scholarships
  • Compete in our Tech Theatre Challenge
  • And much, much more!
There are three easy ways to make your tax-deductible donation:
  1. Donate online using a credit card
  2. Send a check to:
    EdTA
    Attn: Send a Troupe
    2343 Auburn Avenue
