Present a Workshop
Each year more than 150 workshops geared toward high school students and their teachers are presented at the Illinois High School Theatre Festival. We call upon your expertise to provide genuine service and significant educational opportunities for all Festival attendees. Your professional theatre experience is worth sharing.
How might you pass your talents on to students attending the Festival? Are you able to present a hands-on workshop that allows attendees an opportunity to interact with and experience concepts that can be brought back to their schools? What would you like to share with the next generation of theatre artists? Please consider the following as you put together your workshop:
In order to ensure ample opportunities for our students, we strongly encourage each school to provide at least one workshop.
