19. A Post for High School Students

This blog is really all about Junior Thespians, but sometimes it's important to spread the word about what is going on in the high school Thespian troupes and our chapter, Thespians of the Western Pacific Islands. So this notice, although it doesn't effect any of the junior thespians of Troupe #88799 right now, is included here to let you know what you can look forward to in high school, and to pass the word about this event.

Thespian Meeting about college--notice from Chapter Director Harold Easton.
Each year the Chapter sponsors a brief workshop for Juniors and Seniors on the subject of College admission.

This is particularly important to our Thespian Seniors.

The presentation will feature our 5 Thespians who participated in the Junior Auditions at the ITS Festival this past summer. Our focus, therefore, is on those schools that have been recruiting our Thespians and accepting them into their Theatre programs.

However, much of the information is also relevant to admission to schools outside of the Theatre Curriculum. We expect that the workshop will at least help you in the following ways:

1. Provide a list of Colleges already being attended by some of our CNMI Thespians.
2. Provide a list of schools currently recruiting CNMI Thespians.
3. Procedures that we feel will insure a maximum potential for success in College admissions.
4. Raise your awareness of the value of the ITS Festival's Junior Auditions, summer 2008.

The workshop will be held in the MHS Cafeteria, on Thursday, September 6 @ 4:00pm.

Freshman and Sophomores are also invited to attend, but the focus will be on the Junior and Senior Troupe members.
