Thespians

The Thespian Pledge. 
“I promise to uphold the aims and ideals of the International Thespian Society.  I am a student of theatre and excellence is my ideal. I promise to perform my part as well as I can; to accept praise and criticism with grace; to cooperate with my fellow Thespians and work for the good of the troupe; and to share my love of theatre.”

 

As a member of ITS, students will be honoured on an international level and have access to resources beyond those of the school. 

  • ITS hosts festivals, workshops, and opportunities to showcase and receive assessment on tech and performance skills

  • A membership card, certificate and induction pin.

  • Student leadership opportunities at the troupe level that provides places for students to develop their leadership skills

  • Honour society membership can enhance college and employment applications. 

This society has a troupe leader, and officers that run the troupe. Students earn induction based on their achievements in its theatre program. 

ITS point system helps track students work in performance, tech and production staff categories. Inductees must earn points of the course of more than one production and in more than one discipline. 

Students can continue to earn ITS points beyond induction to achieve progressively higher honours.
