 Francis Howell North’s Thespian troupe 4956 is going to the Missouri Thespian Conference, or Thescon,  from Jan. 19-22 at the Union Station hotel in Saint Louis. The group has been going for 35 years. 

“It is so much fun,” junior Piper Orzel said. “It’s just a bunch of theater kids together and you get to learn so much.”

After not being able to go last year, many of the juniors and seniors are excited to go back. A lot of the freshmen and sophomores who have never had a chance to go are very excited despite not knowing what to expect.

“I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again and seeing the different offers there are this time around,” junior Aubrey Crespo said.
