  • Thespians

    Arizona Thespian Festival

    The dates for the festival this year are November 10-11, 2023.  Click below for more information. To reserve your spot, I need a $25 deposit and a completed 2023-2024 Chapter Consent and Acceptance form. You can get the forms at Drama Club or from Ms. Munson in room 312. The cost was $120 for most people last year and should be similar this year, unless you are already an inducted Thespian (Inducted members get a discount). It includes your registration and transportation for two days of Festival. Unfortunately this year it WILL NOT cover your lunch on Saturday.  


     What is Festival?

    Festival is a learning experience for all high school theatre troupes in Arizona. There will be workshops lead by adults from across the state and across the country. Students will see two full-length high school productions and some will have the chance to participate in tech challenge. (There are extra fees for competitions and scholarship auditions.) Three senior Thespians from each high school may also audition for the Arizona Thespian Scholarships, while at the same time being seen by approximately twenty colleges, universities and conservatories. Arizona has one of the top five festivals in the nation! 

    Who Can Attend?

    Anyone who is interested in drama, stage production or thespians is welcome to attend. 

    How much does it cost?

    Thespian registration is $115 and Non-Thespian registration is $125. (The difference is set by the State Thespian Board.) This will cover registration and transportation.

    How do I register?

    To get registered, Ms. Munson will need a completed 2023 Chapter Consent and Acceptance form, and a receipt from the DVHS bookstore that states you paid at least a $25 deposit for festival into the Drama Club (Thespian) account. Or you may bring the money to Ms. Munson directly.
