International Thespian Society
“Act well thy part; there all the honor lies.”
This is the motto of the International Thespian Society (ITS), an honorary organization for high school theatre students founded in 1929. ITS troupes are located at more than 3,600 affiliated secondary schools across the globe. Concordia’s registered chapter, dubbed “Incognito,” was officially chartered in 2010 and has honored a total of 42 thespians, seven of whom were Scholar Thespians.
Induction to the society, as well as the level of membership, is decided using a points-based system. Points are earned through participation in theatre productions, festivals/conferences, or troupe-managed activities. Concordia students have many opportunities every year to earn points toward induction, including but not limited to: the Fall Play, One-Act Plays, the APAC Theatre Festival, and the Spring Musical. Details concerning induction, participation, and membership benefits can be found in the links to the right.
This year’s peer-elected ITS Executive Board comprises of President Vivian Tsao, Vice President Harper Lagares, Treasurer James Larsen, Secretary Iris Kim and Historian Shelby Wilson.
