We have 5 unique regions in BC... These regions all have a Regional Coordinator, HUB City, Post Secondary or Regional Theatre Host, and a range of schools/districts that can attend. These regions are based around geography. Both public and private schools from a region are welcome to participate together. Each region will host an annual Regional Thespy Qualifier between late-October to mid-December to recognize excellence in youth theatrical arts and qualify students to the BC PTF - which happens in mid-February.
