California Chapter Select (Play Marathon)

  • One performance from the CA Thespians Play Festivals may be selected to represent CA at the International Thespian Festival (ITF).
  • This decision will be made by adjudicators at the CA State Thespian Festival (CSTF).
  • Up to six Play Festival entries may be invited to the Chapter Select Final Round (Play Marathon) at CSTF.

We invite all State Festival attendees to watch the Play Marathon as their schedule allows.
Location and times will be posted in the CSTF program.

To perform in the final round of Chapter Select adjudication, the invited school needs to have:

    • A chartered Thespian troupe
    • Register for the CSTF on time


    • Register before registration closes due to capacity. CSTF registration spots will not be held.

The International Thespian Festival will be held June 24-28, 2024 in Bloomington, IN.

To have a piece selected for CA Chapter Select, start by registering for the Northern, Central, Southern, or Virtual Play Festival.
