Every year Garfield Thespians goes to the state Thespian Festival, held in Bellingham or Ellensburg in alternating years. This year’s festival will be March 16-18 on the campus of Central Washington University in Ellensburg.
We need parent chaperones to accompany the students. Parents who’ve gone in the past can tell you it’s a really good time! Please contact Mr. Hawk ASAP if you are available to chaperone.
At the three-day/two-night festival, students attend workshops and performances with other theatre students from across the state. Our students usually perform several one-act plays, and the highlight — a “work-in-progress” performance of several numbers from the musical. There’s no better audience than an entire room of theatre people! The cost to attend is about $200, with scholarships available for any student who needs one.
