2020 ThesCon Registration Reminder

Important Dates:

  • Conference Registration Deadline: November 13, 2019
  • Super Deadline: December 6, 2019
  • LeadCon 2: January 4, 2020
  • Conference: February 6-8, 2020

Conference Registration

ThesCon registration is in full swing! Two days after registration opened, we received 62 registration packets! Directors have been quicker to complete their packets this year and the packets have been more error free than ever before. Thanks to all directors who have been so careful with their packets!

If you are completing your registration or have not started yet, remember that the “received by” deadline is Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at 6:00 PM.

When your registration packet is accepted, an automated email is generated and sent to you. This email includes your prospective seating assignment for the Opening and Closing events. You can always revisit the Conference Registration page to review your registration.

Some of you have received confirmation emails with seating for the Opening and Closing described as “Limbo Bill Heard/Springer.” All seating at this time is somewhat temporary. Factors determining final seating will resolve themselves in January, when physical tickets are actually counted and assigned to troupes. “Limbo “is our way of describing being on the bubble between one house and the other to let you know that the Bill Heard might fill before your troupe is assigned seating, and you might receive tickets to the Springer closed circuit viewing


Don’t forget to nominate your awesome students, administrators, and colleagues to recognize the outstanding work they do both onstage and off. Check out the applications for Outstanding Student Achievement, Hall of Fame, and Administrator Award on the Awards page below. Have questions? Email us at awards@gathespians.org, and they’ll be glad to help you out!
