State Thespian Conferences & Festivals: We’ll be there!
Every state in the union has an Educational Theatre Association. Essentially, EdTA’s mission is to promote theatre education in school’s and their communities. In support of this, each state’s EdTA offers its members a festival at which participants attend mainstage and studio performances and learn from workshops. Students may also compete in individual events and audition for scholarships. At many of these festivals, there are college recruitors and vendors for both the students and the educators benefit. One such vendor is Costume Holiday House!
There is a representative from Costume Holiday House, Inc. at many of the State Thespian Festivals in the country. We attend in hopes of connecting (or reconnecting) with schools who are in need of costume support for their shows. We speak with directors, costumers and students alike about the advantages of renting with us. Some of the advantages include: low cost, nationwide shipping and a large costume stock. The aspect of Costume Holiday House that is typically the most impressive to high school theatre educators is the fact that you can rent as many or as few costumes as you like, there is no minimum requirement!
