CREATe & INSPIRe
Each year the Maryland State Thespian Festival hosts vendors from across the state, offering our delegation of over 700 festival attendees access to some of the best theatre related products and services that exist today. It's an experience unlike any other and a rare opportunity to help inspire a specific demographic of theatre educators and students state-wide. Join us and experience the benefits of highlighting your program, product and/or service to the next generation of theatre artists.
WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR IN 2020
We're looking for the best and most existing programs, products and services - from the latest theatrical resources, the opening of a new dance studio, to the best theatre rentals around. We strive to ensure that all vendors have a direct connection with the field of theatre and/or theatre education. All products sold at the 2019 Maryland State Thespian Festival must relate directly to the creation, promotion, celebration or teaching of theatre. Items that challenge our dress and/or behavior code for students can not be sold or advertised.
WHO SHOULD APPLY
Organizations and/or business who will be representing, selling, or promoting a theatrical product or service. These individuals will not participate in Festival other than staffing their respective table. For clarity, this application is not for College/University Representatives and/or Teaching Artists.
