The Thespian Leadership and Technical Conferences offer a variety of enlightening opportunities for all theatre interests. Students can engage in leadership training in areas of publicity, stress management, fund raising, troupe bonding, and many other exciting prospects. There is also a track for those who have attended leadership in the past and crave a more advanced level of enrichment.

Students with an interest in technical theatre can attend an assortment of workshops from working professionals in the entertainment industry. Teachers may take part in their own workshops or network with others in their profession. At the end of the day, everyone walks away feeling refreshed and assured that they can tackle any obstacle that the coming school year offers.

Conferences are held in both the northern and southern regions of the state. For more information such as dates, times, and how to register please visit the links below.
