Main Stage

The International Thespian Festival’s main stage is the only place you can watch a new outstanding high school theatre production from around the globe every day, all in one location!

ITF’s main stage program honors students, teachers, and Thespian troupes by showcasing their amazing work in theatrical production on the largest of stages – in front of thousands of fellow Thespians and theatre educators at the annual event on the campus of Indiana University. There's nothing like the rush of presenting or watching a show at ITF!

Interested in Bringing Your Show to ITF?

During the academic year prior to ITF, Thespian troupes may have one of their live, full-length productions (a play or a musical) adjudicated for constructive feedback and the chance to be invited to perform on the main stage at ITF. Adjudications are completed digitally, and a select number of outstanding troupes will be invited to perform on the ITF 2024 main stage.

How to Apply

The deadline to apply for production adjudication was 8 p.m. October 4, 2023. Thank you to all who submitted applications!

For troupes who have submitted applications, adjudication materials are due within one week of opening night or by 8 p.m. (Eastern) / 5 p.m. (Pacific) on December 1, 2023, whichever comes first.
