International Thespian Society

Troupe 1090

Here at Capo Drama, we are involved in the International Thespian Society.  The goal of ITS is to honor student excellence in theatre arts.  Upon completing and recording 100 hours of theatre-related activities, a student can opt to be inducted into the ITS, thereby becoming an official, card-carrying Thespian.  These theatre-related activities include being in the cast or crew of a play or musical, attending a play or musical, writing a critique of that performance, being on the Executive Drama Board at school, etc., etc.  See the form to the left for a more detailed explanation of the Thespian Point System.

The Cappies is a theatre critque writing program that aims to celebrate high school theatre.  Student critics from participating schools attend high school productions, compose reviews and submit them to their Cappies mentors in hopes of being published.  OC Cappies works with the Orange County Department of Education and current season student reviews are published on The Orange County Register website.  There is also a Tony's style Gala at the end of the year awarding the top-achieving schools, based on their peer reviews.  


So far this year, Capo Drama has had four of our critics published in the OC Register for their remarkable reviews.


The Capo Drama Cappies Advisor is Emily Tucker, and the mentor is Ron Miller.
