International Thespian Society: TROUPE 5998

“Theatre is an art as old as humanity. Commitment to theatre is what the International Thespian Society is all about. The Society was established in 1929 by a group of college and high school teachers in Fairmont, West Virginia. They named their organization for Thespis, the Greek who, according to legend, was the first actor. Their guiding principle was a dedication to excellence in theatre arts in schools.

Since that time, the Society has grown into an international organization with more than a million members, and the goals of the International Thespian Society haven’t changed. It still recognizes students who thrive in the world of theatre. ITS continues to be guided by a key principle of its founders: a belief that participation in the arts is an essential means of widening students’ cultural horizons and enriching their lives.”
