"What is a Thespian and how do I become one?"

 

The International Thespian Society (ITS) is the Honor Society of which Theatre Co. is a member (Troupe 1764!). A Thespian is either an actor or tech theatre student who has been inducted in ITS. To be inducted in ITS, you must participate in MKHS shows either on stage or behind the stage. Once you are inducted and become a Thespian, you will continue to earn points toward receiving your Honor Cord. So, the more you are involved in theatre, the more points you earn and the sooner you will be inducted.
