Individual Events

IEs are offered at State Thespian Conference, Jr Thespian Conference, and International Thespian Festival.  Students must be inducted Thespians/Jr Thespians in order to take part.  Participating in IEs gives a student the opportunity to show off he/her theatre skills in front of qualified judges in order to earn ranking such as superior, excellent, good, and fair.  Students earning two superior ratings are allowed to perform in a showcase as well as move on to International Thespian Festival and compete on an International level.

There are two types of IEs:  Performance and Technical Theatre.  Performance IEs will be performed in front of judges, while technical theatre IEs require the participant to submit a portfolio to the judges.  Although multiple entries in each category from one troupe can be submitted in Jr Thespians, each Thespian troupe can only submit one entry per IE category.  A student may only participate in one category.  Students participating in IEs pay an extra $5 charge added onto their conference fees.
