Join us in NYC on Saturday, April 29, 2017 (8:30am-6pm) for the New York Educational Theatre Festival. Open to high school and middle school students, this full-day festival features workshops, professionally adjudicated Individual Events, an Improv Frenzy, student performances, a Tech Challenge, and scholarship and leadership opportunities!

We are also offering an optional Thespian outing to Arthur Miller's The Price on Broadway as an opening reception the night before the festival on Friday, April 28 at 8pm. This will include a $30 ticket to The Price and a social event to meet each other and form early connections for the festival!

New York Thespians is a chapter of the Educational Theatre Association, which sponsors the International Thespian Society, an honorary organization for middle and high school theatre students.

The festival is hosted by the American Academy of Dramatic Arts (120 Madison Avenue) and sponsored by Music Theatre International.
