State Thespian Officers

A Georgia State Thespian Officer (STO) is an elected freshman, sophomore, or junior thespian to serve as a student leader for the Georgia Thespians Chapter Board. Throughout the year the STO board, containing 9 exemplary student leaders from across the state, have a variety of responsibilities focused on advocacy for the Arts and Georgia Thespians, fundraising for Georgia Thespian Conference Grants and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids, engagement with current Thespians, and planning/executing/leading events for the Georgia Thespian Conference each year. In Georgia, we believe our students have a powerful voice and amazing student leadership abilities that we know are necessary for the success of our organization. We are looking forward to working with YOU!
