The International Thespian Festival hosts approximately seventy unique exhibitors from colleges, universities, actor training programs, publishing companies, tech equipment vendors, and other theatre-related business all over the world. Exhibit areas are located in the Lied Center lobbies and the Lied Commons building—two major hubs of Festival activity. Exhibitors receive great exposure for their business or organization while greatly enhancing the Festival experience for all delegates.

Colleges attending auditions

Many of the exhibit area’s colleges and universities also send representatives to see college-bound Thespians perform in the College Auditions held throughout Festival week. Callbacks and interviews are posted on the callboard in the Lied Commons building and held at various on-campus locations.


The International Thespian Festival Program is a resource all delegates use to navigate and plan their Festival experience. The program includes schedules, workshop details, maps, and other important information. Advertising opportunities are available for our college and business partners.

Educational Theatre Association offers our college and business partners the opportunity to be part of a robust event sponsorship program, proving their commitment to the International Thespian Festival through a partnership with EdTA. EdTA is grateful for these institutions and their support of EdTA and Thespians across the country.
