ThesFest 2021

Saturday, February 6
Acton-Boxborough Regional High School

How Does Registration Work?

1. Fill out the festival registration form to register all students coming to fest. Registration includes unlimited workshop participation with professional artists, attending Thespys (IEs) in a masterclass setting, scholarship entry for inducted thespians presenting a Thespy, one-act play attendance, freestyle workshop attendance, and dinner. 


2. Once you have registered your school or group to attend, you must register any Thespys (IEs) your students wish to present in acting, musical theatre, and technical theatre. (You will receive an email after your festival registration that grants access to register for the Thespys.) Thespys are our master classes, and Thespys are open to all students to attend as audience members. Inducted thespians are eligible for scholarships through our Thespys 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, freestyle theatre workshop, participate in a workshop, attend the Thespys, or watch a show adjudication.


4. Once we receive your festival registration form, we will send you an invoice based on your registration. All payments must be received by February 6 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 6. 


6. Remind students to bring their own lunch!
