We have 6 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 in early to mid December to recognize excellence in youth theatrical arts. Blue Ribbon performances will qualify students to perform at the BC PTF opening ceremonies.
