SHS International Thespian Group #6354

Every year SHS Thespian Group #6354, travels to Southern California to participate in the California State Thespian Festival in spring.  Over 1,000 students from California typically attend the State Thespian Competition. They participate in a number of different theatre activities, such as workshops led by theatre professionals, perform or view individual performance and tech events, audition for scholarships, talk to college reps, and interact with other California Thespians.


Each year, Saratoga Theatre Arts subsidizes the cost of student participation in this competition and provides scholarships if necessary.


Last year, SHS had 38 students attend, four won the Group Acting category, 13 won or were recognized for achievements in their areas of competition, and 17 received the highest ratings possible in their respective events, making them eligible to perform at the International Thespian Conference in the summer.
