Joined by current working Broadway Professionals that are Thespian Alumni, this panel focuses on the importance of the Thespian Society and how it has shaped the lives of Alumni and the future of Broadway. The panel will include representatives from The Educational Theatre Association (International- Level), Members of the New York Thespians (State Level), and notable Alumni that are currently active in the Broadway industry (Performers, Producers, and Stage Managers). This panel will not only serve as an informative session about the Thespians program but also allow current Thespians attending BroadwayCon to join together. By highlighting Broadway professionals that were Thespians back when they were students, the panel will also serve as inspiration for aspiring future Broadway performers and professionals.
