Maine Educational Theatre Conference

September 3, 2011

Maine EdTA

Maine Educational Theatre Conference, October 14 at USM Russell Hall, Gorham.  Maine EdTA is a chapter of the national organization that sponsors the INternational Thespian Society, a drama honor society for high school and middle school students.  Although Maine has had Thespian Society troupes for 30 to 40 years, the state chapter organization in their support was organized just three years ago.  This will be our fourth annual conference at USM.

The conference will consist of workshops led by working professionals in southern Maine.  Students are invited to perform monologues, short scenes or songs for adjudication to earn an invitation to perform at the International Thespian Festival in Nebraska in June.  Maine EdTA will also award a college scholarship of $1,000 to a worthy student selected through an application process and an interview at the conference.

For the last two years, the conference has hosted about 175 students from across the state.  The conference is open to all students from Maine high schools.  Information about the conference is available at or by contacting Rick Osann, the state Chapter Director, at
