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.
