Amidst the uncertainty of our world, what remains the constant is Arizona Thespians commitment to promoting theatre education in our schools and community. 

As we navigate through the temporary changes we are all experiencing, our thoughts as an organization immediately went to our events that were scheduled for the fall semester: our Coaches’ Convention/Leadership Camp in August and our annual Arizona Thespian Festival we hold each November in downtown Phoenix. 

At the forefront of our minds is always what is best for students and for teachers. 

With the changes in mind, it is with deep sadness that we regret to announce our decision to cancel the events that were scheduled for the fall semester. 

At this point in time there are too many unknowns and health guidelines that we feel we are unable to physically and financially comply with. Our focus is always what is in the best interest of students and we feel this is the best option for their health and safety. 

Even though our events are cancelled, we still plan to continue some elements of our thespian festival including scholarship auditions and community service opportunities. More information will be available in the fall. 

We want you to know that we are here for you and your students. Our goal does not change and we will continue to promote theatre education in our schools and community. 

Now, more than ever, theatre plays a vital role in the lives of our students, and we remain committed to being the driver of those opportunities.
