GCHS Thespians Troupe To Perform at State Theater Festival

The Garden City High School Thespian Troupe 2846 will present “Miss You Like Hell” at the Kansas Thespian State Festival that will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Wichita and Century II Performing Arts and Convention Center. This year’s festival will be January 9-11, 2020.

Each year, approximately 1600 high school theatre students attend this three day festival.  Students can choose from nearly 200 workshop sessions taught by college theatre professors, high school drama teachers, and guest artists from around the country. Colleges bring displays to promote their theatre programs. Students compete in Individual Events for a chance to qualify for the International Thespian Festival in June.

Five schools from across the state bring a show to perform on one of the main stages in Century II Performing Arts Center.  Students can also compete in a variety of theatre activities including playwriting, charades, theatre trivia, improvisation, creative costuming, and Tech Challenge.  Thespians who are seniors can audition for the colleges that attend the conference. Two seniors from each school have the opportunity to compete for $10,000 in Thespian Scholarships.
