No spectators are allowed in the competition spaces.

What happens if I earn a double superior?
Individual Events participants who score a double superior rating are invited to complete for the ‘Thespy’ at International Thespian Festival to be held at Indiana University June 22-27. Ohio Thespians recommends the International Thespian Festival as an educational experience for many reasons outside of the IE competition, including full-length productions, workshops by professionals, college auditions for juniors, scholarship opportunities for seniors, networking, and more. We hope that troupe directors will advertise Festival as an event that is worth the students’ time regardless of the ability to compete in Individual Events.

Please note: Not all categories are recognized by the International Thespian Festival and may be ineligible to proceed past the state level. Please consult the complete IE guidelines for more details.
