Upper School Drama Students Shine at ThesCon

Each year, the Upper School drama program participates in the Georgia Thespian Conference (ThesCon), which features the Thespys, an optional competition where students can enter submissions in a variety of categories, from performance to technical to theatre marketing. These entries are sent prior to the annual conference to be adjudicated by three judges, who score in four levels: Superior, Excellent, Good and Poor. 

Pace Academy Troupe 4424 joined 215 other troupes in Columbus, Ga. for a weekend of theater productions, workshops, auditions, games, and the presentation of adjudicated performances and technical demonstrations.
