Thespian Troupes in Iowa and Arizona will get to attend the International Thespian Festival (ITF) thanks to the Educational Theatre Association’s Send a Troupe to Festival grant, which will cover the troupes’ travel and registration expenses. The recipients are John R. Mott High School Thespian Troupe 417 in Postville, Iowa and Westwood High School Thespian Troupe 7803 in Mesa, Arizona.
This year, an additional troupe will have the opportunity to participate thanks to the generosity of Steve Houghton, the former Assistant Director for EdTA, and his wife Dawn, who now reside in Kewadin, Michigan. They made a generous donation to benefit a troupe in Michigan. The recipient is Heritage High School Thespian Troupe 5491 in Saginaw.
