Home of the official California, Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, New Mexico, Virginia, and Wyoming Thespian festivals

Join thousands of Thespians for a fun-filled weekend of theatre and community. Mark your calendar and clear your schedule now for the International Thespian Society’s first-ever multistate virtual chapter festival!

Thespian Nation Live will look a lot like your annual chapter festival, except you’ll be able to join from anywhere, from the comfort of your home! You can choose to attend 20 unique workshops covering all aspects of theatre, from acting and directing to writing and design. You’ll watch entertaining online productions, and you’ll have the opportunity to enhance your experience by participating in college auditions or submitting your work for feedback during a Thespy® Awards practice session.

  • Level up your skills with 20 interactive workshops
  • Showcase your talents at the virtual cabaret and show tunes singalong, sponsored by iHeartRadio Broadway
  • Meet one-on-one with colleges to launch the next stage of your theatre journey (hurry, submissions due January 11!)
  • Earn valuable feedback on your Thespy® Awards program submission
Plus, you’re guaranteed time to relax, relate, and recharge with Thespians from your chapter and other chapters across the country.
