TRW in the Heartland: Thespian Festival 2012 is on and TRW is THERE!

The annual Thespian Festival at the University of Nebraska is the premiere event on the high school theatre calendar! The week showcases great high school performances on four stages, a wealth of learning opportunities for students and educators in workshops and master classes, a student leadership program, auditions for college admission and Thespian scholarships, the Thespian Playworks, and much more. TRW is a long-time supporter of the Festival and this year we have stepped up to the plate with a Platinum Sponsorship and a full slate of activities. Our Director of Licensing Jim Hoare and our Manager of Licensing & Accounts Julie Abdelahad are in Lincoln and hosting an information packed exhibit. We’ve got workshops lined-up and demonstrations of our newest rehearsal and performance enhancement products.

Jim’s hot new workshop, ‘Writing a New Musical,” is sure to be a hit with students and teachers alike. This in-depth look at the many ways that musical theatre writers do their thing is designed to illuminate the process of crafting the great American musical.
