Our very own Riley Given, sophomore, and Torrye Torrance, senior, were selected to showcase their work!

COVID-19 & OREGON STATE THESPIANS
March 19, 2020
Due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak and Gov. Brown's statement, Oregon State Thespians has had to cancel the 2020 conference.

More updates will come about future events, but keep your heads up thespians. We'll all get through this together.
