Thespian Society

The International Thespian Society (ITS), an honorary group for middle (6-8) and high school
(9-12) theatre students, is a division of the Educational Theatre Association (EdTA). The mission
of ITS is to honor student excellence in the theatre arts. Thespian troupes are just a component of
a school’s theatre program. ITS membership offers many valuable benefits, services, and
opportunities to troupe directors and Thespians alike.

Thespian induction is a great motivator for students to become more active in their school’s
theatre program. Whether or not these students pursue careers in the performing arts, the skills
that they learn through theatre and Thespian activities are invaluable and ensure that future
generations will appreciate and support the arts in our communities.
