Q: Festival registration dates overlap with Trumbauer registration dates. My students want to do both, but that is a lot of money at one time. What are my payment options?
A: You MAY bring your payment with you upon arriving at festival. However, we will not allow any troupes to participate if payment has not been made by the opening ceremony. In addition, special events that are space restricted, such as Chapter Select, Main Stage, Main Stage Challenge, and potentially some IE’s, will not be locked in as “yours” until payment has been received. You might consider paying the fees attached to those events earlier, and then bringing the remainder of your payment to festival.
Q: I know that my troupe will be attending festival, but will have no idea when registration opens how many will be able to attend. Should I still register?
A: YES! Our online registration program saves your progress and updates. You can register your troupe and input all of your troupe members that could potentially participate. As you know more details, you can add or take away participants without penalty until registration closes on December 18th.
Q: How do I edit information or delete a participant?
A: To edit information for a previously entered participant, you must click on the ‘DIRECTORY’ tab. Then click on ‘Register Another’ depending on what information you are editing. There will be a pencil icon next to each participant you have registered. Click on that picture to edit.
Q. We want to bring a show to festival. Do we sign up online when we register?
A: Yes and no. If you would like to participate in the Chapter Select, or Main Stage, you will need to make that selection as part of online registration so that your time slot is locked in and your fees are added to your invoice. THEN, please fill out the performance application for your event found on our website. There is an option of completing the application online (recommended) or as a hard copy.
Q: I am alone when it comes to thespians, so I do not yet know chaperone availability. What am I to do about registering that part?
A: You may enter a placeholder name that can be changed without penalty until registration closes in November. We encourage everyone to bring at least one chaperone or additional staff member to festival in case of emergency. In addition, most school systems require policy 1 adult for every 10 participants. If this is not something you are able to do, then you will need to contact the Festival Director to discuss your individual situation and how to move forward.
Q: I am a new troupe director and my troupe is new as well. I am not yet in a position to ask for fees but would really love to come to festival. Is there a program to help new troupes?
A: YES! If you are a troupe that has never attended festival, we encourage you to apply for the “Send-a-Troupe” festival grant. This application is located on our website.
Q: Most of my students are able to pay for registration fees, but I have a student who is not as fortunate. My program is not financially able to pay their way, but I would like them to participate. Are their individual scholarships?
A: YES. The Sheree Alford Scholarship is designed for an individual troupe member who cannot afford the festival fees. You can find more information and the application on our website.
