Under the Register tab you will add all of the other staff members attending with you. Everyone entering the convention center must be registered. Please do not tell others to attend without adding them to your account, they will not be admitted due to security, insurance, and our current health emergency.
University Scholarship Auditions
Beginning 2021, performance and technical theatre auditions will be submitted digitally. After the submission deadline, Casey Kesis, University and Scholarship Coordinator, will send you a URL link with student information, photo, resume, and an uploaded video audition or tech presentation. The link will be kept live for your reference through the month of December. Callbacks can be determined by each individual institution. You may call back individuals in person at your table in the University and Vendor Lobby at the event, or you may call back students in a different manner. Please note: students want to talk to schools, so if you cannot join us in person, please find unique ways to connect personally with those individuals you’re interested in having on your campus.
Colorado Thespians Scholarships: Each year, Colorado Thespians awards three scholarships in the amount of $2,000 each in Acting, Musical Theatre, and Technical Theatre. As a college or university representative, you are a part of the team that selects these winners. The University and Scholarship Coordinator will communicate how we obtain your selections in these categories when the audition link is sent.
Vendor and Exhibitor Display Tables
Every organization that registers will receive one table and two chairs in the main concourse of the Colorado Convention Center. Tables are assigned by Vendor Coordinator Andy Jaramillo on a first come, first served basis. If you’d like a spotlight location in our University and Vendor Lobby, review the sponsorship opportunities available at the conference. The Colorado Convention Center does charge for electricity, and they will bill each organization directly. They do not provide those charges to Colorado Thespians. A bill from the CCC will be present on your table daily if your organization utilizes this utility. Please note: additional tables are charged through the Convention Center for an additional fee. Set-up for your table can take place Thursday morning between 8-11 a.m. for middle school educators to take advantage of your services during the afternoon of their event (Thursday). Although security is provided, it is not advisable to leave expensive valuables in plain sight when the booth is unattended. Colorado Thespians and the Colorado Convention Center are not responsible for any lost or stolen materials and property.
