Interested in bringing your production to the Iowa Thespian Mainstage? Please fill out the form below and click “submit” prior to June 19, 2017.

Notes on producing an Iowa Thespian Mainstage:
All Mainstage productions take place in the Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center on the campus of the University of Northern Iowa. If your school is selected to perform at this year’s festival, you will be asked to submit the following: a performance contract, a technical contract, proof of performance rights, and a performance fee or adjudication fee.*

Load-in and load-out times will be finalized as the festival schedule is established; all Mainstage directors are required to meet with the technical staff at the GBPAC one month prior to festival in order to finalize all technical arrangements.

*If you wish to be adjudicated by the EdTA for a possible performance slot at the International Thespian Festival in Lincoln, your fee is $500. If you do not, your performance fee is $300.

Please contact Leslie La Corte ( if you have any questions about your application.
