An Annual Affair

ThesCon

Every January, more than a thousand high school students from all around Tennessee gather together out of a mutual love of everything theatre. Memories are made, friendships are forged, and lives are changed.

The stage is a magic circle where only the most real things happen, a neutral territory outside the jurisdiction of Fate where stars may be crossed with impunity. A truer and more real place does not exist in all the universe.
