2018 IS OFF AND RUNNING!

WELCOME BACK!  We have exciting things in store!  Here are a few things needing your immediate attention:

INSTANT THEATRE is the new name for Oregon Thespians’ Improv Festival, and this year we’re adding TECH to the mix, thanks to the work of our very creative and industrious STO.  The event is October 6 at McNary HS in Keizer.  Registration is online and must be done by September 27.  Click here for more information.

THE ANNUAL OTEA CONFERENCE for teachers is in Newport on October 12 and 13.  Online registration is now open!  Click here for further information.

COLLEGE AUDITIONS will be offered for Thespian Seniors this year, on October 14 at Artists Repertory Theatre.  We are currently up to 20 colleges attending.  We’re excited to make this event a mainstay on our calendar.  Click here for details and application procedures.
