International Thespian Society
The International Thespian Society (ITS) is the Educational Theatre Association’s student honorary organization. ITS recognizes the achievements of high school and middle school theatre students. Since 1929, EdTA has inducted more than 2 million Thespians into ITS. That number continues to grow, with more than 36,000 students from around the country being inducted each year.Thespians receive the highest recognition due those who have demonstrated commitment and excellence in their school’s theatre program. ITS membership encourages them to practice their craft and to grow as a person. The skills that they learn from a quality theatre arts education — creativity, self-confidence, leadership, communication, and interpersonal skills, as well as specific theatre skills — will benefit them in their school days and beyond.For more information, please visit the official ITS website:
