Junior ThesCon 2023
The 2023 Georgia Junior Thespian Conference will be held on February 25, 2023 in Columbus, GA.
The Georgia Junior Thespian Conference provides the opportunity to participate in a variety of workshops, master classes, individual performances, and technical theatre events led by theatre professionals from around the country, all while you get to hang out with nearly 1,000 middle school students from around the state.
Jr. ThesCon will be held in the The Columbus Trade Center and the CSU Riverside Theatre in Columbus, GA.
Please review the Georgia Thespian Code of Conduct.
Please review the Safety and Security Rules.
Because the conference is an educational event for middle school students and their teachers and is bound by seating limitations, participation in all events will be available only to Thespian troupes and schools who have registered by the registration cut-off date.
Conference Agreement Form: All conference attendees – students and adults – are required to complete an Agreement Form. Troupe Directors will collect copies of Agreement Forms from their attendees and will submit a copy of each Agreement Form with their registration packets.
