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.
TUE, THU & FRI from 2:30-4:00pm & 4:15-5:45pm in Kaufman 111, Team TRW will be giving demos of Show|Ready™ and Stage|Tracks™, our new rehearsal and performance tools. These new, ultra user-friendly rehearsal and performance accompaniment interfaces are the next generation of this popular product line. Check it out at Thespian Fest 2012.
Also, at the Show|Ready™ and Stage|Tracks™ demos, learn about the CHANGING MINDS Video Smackdown, where you might win $5,000 for your Theatre department. AND…SING SONGS! Oh, yes, sing with us from SPAMALOT, CURTAINS, ALL SHOOK UP and THE COLOR PURPLE!
