Over 3,000 students competed in Individual Performance and Technical Theatre events, and all 16 Marcus students competing in Performance Events earned high enough scores to qualify for the International Thespian Convention in Lincoln, Nebraska, in June 2016.
In addition, the show "Elephant's Graveyard" was adjudicated by a National panel for possible presentation at the Convention in June. If selected, all 18 Thespian members who attended the State Festival would proudly represent Marcus and Texas on the International Thespian Stage. Please congratulate these students that achieve so much in little time. They competed against 6,200 students from across Texas who also participated in the festival.
