50 Years of the Best of High School Theatre!

2013 marks the 50th annual Educational Theatre Association's (EdTA) Thespian Festival, bringing together the best and brightest on the high school musical theatre circuit for a week-long confab filled with productions, workshops, college admission sessions, masterclasses and more. The week, held last month on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus, kicked off with Making Magic, Defying Gravity, a special presentation featuring cast members and professionals from Wicked alongside local high school theatre students.

The evening also featured a “behind the curtain” conversation led by J. Jason Daunter, production stage manager of Wicked, and Matt Conover, vice president, creative entertainment and Disney Parks talent casting — both former students of the EdTA's middle school and high school student honorary organization. Along with the Wicked cast, they spoke to the 2,500 students at the festival about how their high school dreams led them to professional lives in the theatre.
