Each year, the International Thespian Society (a part of the Educational Theatre Association (EdTA), based here in Cincinnati), hosts a festival for high-school actors, directors, and teachers at Indiana University in Bloomington. Due to the ongoing pandemic, this year will be a virtual conference as Rick Pender learns in this conversation with EdTA Executive Director Julie Cohen Theobald.

During the recently completed 24th Annual Acting Irish International Theatre Festival, held in Rochester N.Y., the production of Outside Mullingar from the Irish American Theatre Company of Cincinnati was awarded Best of Show plus Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor. Best Director, plus Technical Excellence in Set Design and Lighting Design.
