In South Carolina two organizations, Palmetto Dramatic Association & SC Thespians, come together to create a high school theatre festival that encourage the development of quality Theatre in secondary schools. We encourage education, advocacy, fellowship, networking, and  fun.  At our festival, we host individual events- both performance and technical, workshops, performances of one acts, performances of original one acts, and play writing competition as well as fund-raise for Broadway Cares and Send a Troupe.

Later in the Spring, SC Thespians sponsors the SC Junior Thespian festival in order to foster lifeskills with the up and coming theatre students in middle school.
