SCHOLARSHIP AUDITIONS continued for some Thespians, while others learned new skills at Wednesday’s five workshop sessions. The International Thespian Festival’s two main stages saw a moving production of 26 Pebbles from Parkland High School of Allentown, Pa., and the Texas Thespians of J.J. Pearce High School in their production of the school edition of Shakespeare in Love they helped pilot.

Act after act entertained the crowd at the annual Festival’s Got Talent revue, and troupes from Mississippi, Colorado, New Jersey, North Carolina, Kansas, and Iowa joined the list of Chapter Select and Freestyle productions. A special performance of the musical The Scottsboro Boys from the Thespians of Bradford High School in Kenosha, Wis., provided late-night entertainment.
