The Georgia Thespian Convention will be February 8, 9 and 10 in Columbus. For those of you new to Thescon, it is a conference attended by over 4000 high school students from all over Georgia that features over 100 different workshops and performances. Many students say that Thescon is the highlight of their year. Students will miss all of school on Thursday and Friday, and will return Saturday night.

The first payment for ThesCon is $125 and will be due by October 16. The $125 covers only the cost of registration and is non-refundable. The remaining payment will be due in January, and will be $100 – $150, depending on the cost of the hotel and bus. All meals will be included.

Along with registration fee, you must turn in the Agreement Form. The form should be fully filled out. Everyone (including chaperons) must have two emergency contacts. If a physician is listed, you must also list the phone number. It is acceptable to write NONE for the physician and phone number. Make certain both you and your child sign the form. This form is also due on November 1.

We currently have a few chaperones lined up, but we could always use more. If chaperones want to attend the workshops and performances, they will need to pay the $125 registration fee.
