Tina Fey will make a guest appearance at the first-ever Virtual International Thespian Festival (ITF), happening on June 22-26, 2020.
According to the official press release, Fey will be asked to dialogue with participants about her own journey as a performer, which began as a student in high school theater. Fey’s Mean Girls: The Musical, based on the screenplay Fey wrote 15 years earlier, earned the most Tony nominations of any Broadway musical in 2018.
“Students will love the opportunity to talk with Tina Fey, someone who started in their shoes and now has such a successful career in theatre, TV, and film,” said Julie Cohen Theobald, Executive Director of the Educational Theatre Association, which produces the event. “Having a virtual event gives us great opportunities to connect with professionals who ordinarily wouldn’t be able to attend in person.”
Virtual ITF is open to all Thespians (members of the International Thespian Society, the honor society for middle and high school theatre students) and theatre students from around the world; their teachers, parents, and families; and colleges, industry leaders, and artists. More details to be announced.
