All adults wishing to attend the Arizona Thespians Festival must consent to a background check.

The safety of our students is of the utmost importance to us. All adults are subject to a background search of the National Sex Offender Database. All entries must be received by October 19, 2023 5:00pm in order for all runs to be completed in a timely manner. You will be contacted if 1) any flags are returned connected to your name or 2) your entry has not been received.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding in this manner. 

Please click on the link below. For your convenience, you will be able to enter your information instead of sending in the signed consent form. As a side note: you do NOT have to add any financial information on the application.

By filling out the form:

I understand my ability to participate in any program involving children as an Arizona Thespian (AZ Thespians) employee or volunteer may be contingent on the receipt and evaluation of my Background Check.

Failure to provide consent will result in the denial of or termination of my participation in any program involving children.

I understand that Arizona Thespians may obtain follow-up Background Checks at any time during my participation in such programs, to the extent permitted by law, unless I revoke this consent in writing. I understand that revocation of this consent may result in the immediate termination of my participation.

I understand that any information obtained from a Background Check may be considered in the course of any current or future engagement, including employment, with Arizona Thespians.

I understand that if the Background Check indicates that an outstanding warrant has been issued against me, Arizona Thespians will share that information with appropriate law enforcement agencies. I have read and understand all of the information above, and by my signature below, consent to and hereby grant authorization to obtain and release of the background check reports described above to Arizona Thespians within the terms of this Statement.
