The International Thespian Society is the student honorary division of the Educational Theatre Association recognizing excellence in middle and high school theatre. Schools join the International Thespian Society by chartering a Thespian or Junior Thespian troupe, which serves as the honor society for their theatre student artists and technicians. The school administration appoints one adult adviser to lead the troupe, the official troupe director. That troupe director is a full professional member of EdTA. The troupe director recognizes and rewards student achievement by inducting eligible students into the International Thespian Society.
Students in grades 9–12 who attend schools with active high school Thespian troupes can earn lifetime membership in the honor society. Troupe directors track student achievement and determine induction eligibility using a point system based on the quality and quantity of each student’s work in theatre and related arts. Thespians receive a wide range of benefits and opportunities throughout their high school careers and become Thespian alumni after graduation.
The lifetime dues cost is $25.00
Students must submit a completed application with all necessary documentation and signatures. Payment of dues must be made to the main office in the Drama Club Account. The receipt must be turned into the troupe director or Thespian Representative to be elligible for induction.
