Send a Troupe to Festival

You can transform lives! You can send a troupe to Festival!

Here's how...

Every summer, more than 3,000 students travel from all over the country and the world to attend the Thespian Festival, a week of creative exploration hosted by the Educational Theatre Association. Festival connects delegates to main stage performances, colleges and scholarships, and a wealth of workshops for learning and growth.

Festival is a life-changing experience, but many troupes that would benefit greatly are not able to attend!

The Send a Troupe to Festival grant covers all travel and basic registration expenses for up to three deserving Thespian troupes who have never been to the Thespian Festival and can demonstrate financial barriers to attending.

Since 2012, generous supporters have sent five troupes to Festival. Your gift can make Festival possible for three deserving Thespian troupes in 2015! Help us get our 2014-2015 campaign off to a great start by giving now.

There are three easy ways to make your tax-deductible donation:
  1. Donate online using a credit card.
  2. Send a check to:
    Attn: Send a Troupe
    2343 Auburn Avenue
    Cincinnati, OH 45219
  3. Call Marion Combs at 513.977.5539
