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 2.2 million Thespians into ITS. That number continues to grow, with more than 36,000 students from around the world being inducted each year.
Having a Thespian troupe at Denton High School raises the profile and stature of our Theatre program, making both the school and community aware of the activities and success of our students. Denton High School's Thespian troupe is led by our troupe directors— Ms. Kerri Peters and Mr. Michael Cleveland. Students earn an invitation to be inducted into the Thespian Society by collecting a minimum of 20 points through performing/teching productions.
How Do I Become A Thespian?
Get involved! The best way to earn thespian points for any department is to get involved with a company's productions. That includes acting, backstage work, and the multitude of other positions that a production requires.
