2019 IOWA THESPIAN FESTIVAL - Mainstage Application
Fill out this form completely and submit by 5:00 p.m., June 21, 2019. The Iowa Thespian Board will meet to vote on Mainstage shows during International Thespian Festival the week of June 24.

Schools will not be allowed to present a Mainstage show at two consecutive Iowa Festivals.

Directors: In order to qualify to direct a Mainstage show at the Iowa Festival, you must have directed a Studio Theatre production at the Iowa Festival in a prior year.

All Mainstage productions will be charged a $500 performance/adjudication fee. If you do not want to be adjudicated, your school will still have to pay the $500 fee.

All Mainstage show content must be appropriate for a high school audience.

If selected, the director of your production will need to complete a performance contract (complete with technical packet and details) and attend an on-site meeting with the technical staff at the University of Northern Iowa during the month of October to finalize all technical and load-in/load-out details.

If you have questions about the Mainstage application, please contact Tom Stephens, Festival Co-Chair, at tstephens@mvcsd.org.
