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.
