The International Thespian Festival is a life-changing experience. But many troupes that would benefit greatly are not able to attend.

For more than 50 years, the International Thespian Festival has been the preferred summer theatre experience for students and teachers alike. It is a week-long immersion in the theatre arts for high-achieving middle and high school drama students and their teachers. Produced by the Educational Theatre Association and held at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, ITF showcases outstanding school theatre productions on four professional stages and offers a wealth of learning and presentation opportunities encompassing all theatrical disciplines. Setting the standard for participatory educational theatre experiences, ITF broadens horizons, enriches learning, and celebrates the creativity of theatre students and educators.

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 International Thespian Festival and can demonstrate financial barriers to attending.
