Honor Society

International Thespian Society  •  Troupe #1515

The International Thespian Society is the world’s largest honor society for theatre students. The designation “Thespian” includes student members who excel in technical and production fields as well as performance in their high school theatre department.

The society recognizes the dedication of theater participants by extending membership through a point system based on hours worked in any given theatrical production. To be invited to become a Thespian, students at Yorktown must participate in two shows to accumulate points to qualify.

Benefits of membership include:

  • One-year subscription to Dramatics magazine
  • Induction into the Thespian Society at the Theatre Awards dinner on 6/9/14
  • Honor Cord to be worn at graduation
  • Wonderful addition to a resume and/or portfolio
  • Membership card
  • Eligibility for scholarships on the state and international levels
