What is a state board member?
The student State Board is a group that assists in planning, organizing, and running the Kansas Thespian Festival. This is a leadership and service organization run by Kansas Thespians. Two students from each troupe can serve on the Kansas Thespian State Board. These delegates must attend all State Board meetings and stay for the entire meeting. For serving on the board, these students will receive a $50 discount on their registration and receive a State Board t-shirt. At the festival, State Board Members will be able to attend workshops, perform in IE’s and shows, college auditions, and any troupe activities. Students will also assist with running events at the festival.
Next Meeting: August 17, 2019 from 10-3pm
at Salina Central High School 650E. Crawford Salina, KS 67401
We are excited to officially announce the Theatre in Our Schools Advocacy Day in Kansas 2019, March 11th, 2019. We will once again have a full day of activities. Please save the date! More details to come next week. We will post on Kansas Thespians and also send an email out pertaining to the specifics. If your school will be attending Advocacy Day email Jennifer Morgan [ firstname.lastname@example.org ] We will be sending out specific information to all who register. We need to know your school, your name, and the names of the students attending.
In preparation for this amazing event, Kansas Thespians will be conducting advocacy training across the state! Please contact the person in charge of your area of Kansas for specific location and directions. I will be emailing all training material to these four lead hosts so all trainees have to do is come!
We are so excited to give students an opportunity to visit with their legislators about how theatre changes lives!
