High School Thespian Troupe 417 is raising money to send all fifteen of their inducted members and two chaperones to the International Thespian Festival on June 25th-30th in Lincoln, NE. They were awarded a grant by the Educational Theatre Association to assist with registration costs for the festival, but are still short by $3600 to send all of their members. They need your help to ensure all of our thespians get to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The International Thespian Festival is a week-long opportunity for students in theatre to: attend workshops in all aspects of theatre, taught by professionals; meet with recruiters from dozens of college’s and university’s theatre programs; watch performances by troupes from across the country; meet students from troupes from across the country. An experience like the International Thespian Festival is rare for Postville students. Registration per student is $790, which is much more than most of our families can afford. Our students would not have this chance without the grant from the EdTA and the generosity of our donors.
Our deadline to raise the funds is April 13th, 2018. All funds raised will go towards the registration fees and/or travel expenses for fifteen thespians and two chaperones to attend the International Thespian Festival. Donations can sent through GoFundMe or also sent directly to the school, to the attention of Thespian Troupe 417.
