Colorado State Thespian Conference, Dec. 10-12, 2020
Over 3,500 of Colorado’s most dedicated high school theater students in grades 9 to 12 attend this conference at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, and over 70 colleges, conservatories, and universities offer more than a million dollars’ worth of college scholarships to students in attendance. Besides the university auditioning experience, students who attend train with the country’s leading professionals in acting, directing, play writing, and technical theater. The conference also affords students the opportunity to attend productions by high schools, professional theaters, and university theater programs.
Normally, as a workshop-heavy, overnight field trip, we limit attendance to 15-18 of our most dedicated students and approach the conference as both an intensive learning and a bonding experience. But, because this year is entirely virtual, we can register as many Tower Theater students as we'd like! The conference cost is $50 per student and will be paid via SchoolPay or with the FCHS bookkeeper. Student applications will close on Friday, Nov. 6th. All students who apply should pay the registration fee via SchoolPay or with the FCHS bookkeeper, and that payment is also due by Nov. 6th.
