After an inspiring day at The Oregon Arts Commission’s OREGON ARTS SUMMIT 2012, OTEA Members gather at 5pm on Friday, September 12, in the upstairs rehearsal room of Portland Center Stage at The Armory.
We’ll meet, enjoy a reception of great conversation, and enjoy a performance of PCS’s SWEENEY TODD. Go to the OTEA Conference page for more information.
Hundreds of Thespians will be gathering in Grants Pass on Saturday, October 6, for the annual Improv Festival. The day begins with registration at 8:30 am and will conclude with awards by 4 pm. When you arrive, your group will be divided among several teams (no two students from the same school are on the same team) and you’ll be given some instruction and time to prepare before showing your stuff!
Note that food will not be available for purchase on campus, so you’ll either need to plan for the trek off-campus (15+ minutes, walking) or bring a lunch. Talk with your Troupe Director regarding lunch plans.
The 2012 Oregon Thespians Leadership Summit is this weekend, as Troupes from throughout the state send two representatives to a 6-hour meeting of the minds. Our State Thespian Officers (STO) have been hard at work on this important event, which begins Saturday evening at Jesuit High School, and concludes Sunday at the Portland Center for the Performing Arts (PCPA), with a performance of LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL.
