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.
