West Virginia Thespian Festival hosted at WVU Creative Arts Center

Monongalia and Preston

This weekend, the West Virginia Thespian Festival is celebrating high school and middle school theater throughout the state at the WVU Creative Arts Center.

The top five one-act performances will be recognized at the event, and several workshops will be happening throughout the weekend. 

Many state universities and colleges are set up to offer information from their theater programs for students.  

“It’s very appropriate.  This is Theater in our School’s month in March.  Theater has a way of bringing out the best in middle school and high school students.  They learn life skills of compassion, and empathy, and teamwork, and understanding and tolerance that are so important in today’s society,” said Martha Louden, chapter director for the event. 

Several tech projects created by students are set up in the CAC lobby for adjudication and display.
