What is it?
 TALENT is a unique opportunity that provides student Thespian leadership training for troupe officers.  Training includes ways to help young leaders learn to work with diverse groups, manage demanding schedules, productive and positive methods for dealing with the stress of school, productions, social media and leadership.  But TALENT is also so much more.  TALENT is learning that there are others across Illinois that do what you do.  It’s an opportunity to network for both students and sponsors, to learn from others and share your expertise as well.  In past years, more than 20 troupes from across the state have attended the lock-in.

TALENT is an opportunity to learn what other schools do with their Thespian troupes in terms of fundraising, initiations and officer roles.  You also learn more about the Educational Theatre Association and what it has to offer you, such as professional development, a community of thousands of theatre educators across the country, advocacy tools and more. 


What does it cost? 
Only $40 will provide both adults and students with a late Friday night snack, Saturday continental breakfast and Saturday lunch,  and supplies.  Any additional money is then used to support our TALENTED Thespians with scholarships!
 
Why should I or my students attend T.A.L.E.N.T.?  
Because it’s fun, educational and worth it to your students and your troupe.  T.A.L.E.N.T. is an excellent way for both you and your students to start off another productive and busy year with the tools, contacts and skills that can make for a stronger, happier Thespian troupe that uses what was learned and applies it. 
 
How do I attend T.A.L.E.N.T.? 
Troupe directors need to complete the registration forms and have all attendees complete the medical release forms.  If you have any questions or concerns about T.A.L.E.N.T. or why you and your students should attend this valuable workshop, please don’t hesitate to email or call the state chapter director.
