ThesFest 2020

Saturday, February 8
Acton-Boxborough Regional High School

How Does Registration Work?

1. Fill out the school registration form to register all students coming to fest. To present a one-act or individual event, please see the steps below to register for those events. Registration includes unlimited workshop participation with professional artists, attending individual events in a masterclass setting, scholarship entry for inducted thespians presenting an individual event, one-act play attendance, and dinner. 


2. Register any individual events (IEs) your students wish to present in acting, musical theatre, and technical theatre. IEs are our master classes, and IEs are open to all students to attend as audience members. Inducted thespians are eligible for scholarships through our IE program!


3. No additional registration is needed for workshops once students are registered for the day. In each part of the day, students can choose to see a one-act, participate in a workshop, attend an individual event master class, or watch a show adjudication.


4. Once we receive your school registration form, we will send you an invoice based on your registration. All payments must be received by February 8 to attend festival. 


5. Collect a consent and acceptance form for every student attending. Students must have a completed form in order to participate. As the director of your group, please complete the director's verification form. Forms must be turned in by 9:00 am Saturday, February 8. 


6. Remind students to bring their own lunch!
