Missouri State Thespians

Missouri Thespians host two conferences each year, a Leadership Conference for your student officers and a State Conference for all of your student members.  You can find all the information you need regarding these events on the corresponding tabs on the left.  Each conference has an online registration that the sponsor will need to fill out before the listed deadlines, but first you must register yourself for our website.  Go to the registration tab on the left and click create login.  You will be asked to create a sponsor profile and password.  Once you have registered for the website you can login to register for the conferences.

Leadership Conference is held each year on a Saturday in early September.  This conference is designed to give you and your student officers information on the upcoming state conference that you can take back to the rest of your troupe.  Registration for Leadership opens in mid-July and closes in the end of August.   

State Conference is held each year in early January from a Thursday to a Saturday.  At this conference your students can attend workshops directed by educators and working professionals and see mainstage productions performed by schools from around the state.  Registration for State opens at Leadership (September) and closes November 1st .  There are many additional events at the state conference as well such as the Tech Challenge, Improv Olympix, Page to Stage, Scholarship Auditions, and Individual Events.
