A group of 12 Maryvale performing arts students went on the Maryland Thespian Society Festival field trip, which was held at Towson University, where people could attend different workshops, one-acts, improv shows, and more.

To attend the field trip, a student needed to join the International Thespian Society (ITS), which is a theatre honors society.

At the festival, many different choices of workshops were offered for students to participate in and one-acts (performed by local high schools in Maryland) to attend. Some of the workshops attended included “Storytelling”, “Emotion in a Song”, “Dancing”, “How to Do a New York Accent”, and “How to Do a British Accent”, among others.

Almost Maine, The Elephant Man, and Steel Magnolias were just a few of the choices for one-act shows to attend.

The improv show was another exciting event to attend, in which games were played to convey a situation without lines pre-planned. On Friday night, a dance with all the other thespians was held, where only songs from Broadway shows were played.

The students had the opportunity to be given a tour of the theatre that Mr. Paul (the technical director at both Towson University and Maryvale) works in. He showed the backstage, the catwalk, the dressing rooms, and even where the props were kept, giving attendees an opportunity to see the functionality of a larger-scale theatre.

Below are some pictures captured during the trip:
