Thespian Society Image Logo

The International Thespian Society (ITS) is a student honorary organization.  (ITS) recognizes the achievements of high school theatre students.

We help every organization that request our help with projects onstage. So far this year we have run the Talent show auditions and Mrs. Douglas Byrd rehearsals and Pageant. All of these activities require after school work. Toward the end of May we will be inducting new members into the International Thespian Honor Society.

As the club sponsor, I provide opportunities for students to earn thespian points by training them and providing support to them and their participation in productions on our stage. I also do all the required paper work associated with their membership and projects. I direct all of the technical aspects of what is happening onstage for our club, as well as anyone else’s club or academic program that ask for our help. –Submitted by Robert M. Baker, Jr.
