Congratulations to the
2022 International Thespian Festival Participants 


This year's International Thespian Festival was held at the Indiana University campus, just south of Indianapolis, Indiana. In addition to competing with other national qualifying performers and technicians from across the country, the TTC attendees had the opportunity to see 8 full-length musical and play productions from around the nation, alongside numerous other interstate one-act plays. Students also attended training workshops in areas of performance, dance, technical production, writing for television and theatre, and marketing and arts administration. TTC participants also had the chance to chat and collaborate with nation-wide industry professionals, playwrights, and professors, along with 3,000 other national participants. After two years of digital attendance, this year's in-person International Thespian Festival was a memorable and refreshing experience that offered a broad scope of theatre productions, competitions, trainings, new friends, and memories!
