The Honor Troupe application process is completely electronic this year! The directions and a template for submitting your troupe’s portfolio electronically are available here on the website. Portfolios are due September 26th. And we’ve adjusted the scoring of portfolios this year to account for the the lost school time due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Thespys (formally known as IEs)
Individual Events has a new name and some new exciting changes! IEs will now be called Thespys to correspond with the EdTA National level qualifiers. At the Georgia Virtual ThesCon 2021, all IEs/Thespys (both performance and tech) can have UNLIMITED digital entries per troupe this year! Like scholarships and auditions, we will be using the Open Water platform, which is the same as the National Thespys at the International Thespian Festival. Please join Jordan Hughes (Juniors) and Cece Conrath (Seniors) for a Q and A and breakout session at LeadCon 1 on Saturday, 9/26/20 and look for more details coming soon!

All auditions for colleges and universities (tech & performance) will take place virtually. Applicants will be able to submit their information, resume, and video (performance audition and/or tech presentation) via the new platform. More details about scholarship and college auctions are coming soon!
