The Georgia Thespian Convention will be February 7, 8 and 9 in Columbus. For those of you new to Thescon, it is a conference attended by over 5000 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. For more information on the conference, please go to their website: https://gathespians.org/conference/
The first payment for ThesCon is $125 and will be due by October 5. The $125 covers only the cost of registration and is non-refundable. The remaining payment will be due in January, and will be $125 – $150, depending on the cost of the hotel and bus. All meals will be included.
I realize this does not give you much advance notice, but we need to register as soon as possible. In the past two year, the conference has had to turn away schools due to running out of space, and we have also not been able to attend the opening and closing numbers due to registering late.
Along with registration fee, you must turn in the Agreement Form by October 5th. https://gathespians.org/2019form/ After filling out the form online, you will receive an email with a pdf that you will need to print out and sign.
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. If you want to chaperone but are not interested in attending the workshops and performances, you would only need to pay the $125-$150 to cover the hotel room and bus.
