International Thespian Society

International Thespian Society
An honor society for Performing Arts students
The International Thespian Society has been honoring excellence in the work of theatre students since 1929. Thespian troupes serve students in grades nine through twelve, and Junior Thespian troupes serve students in grades six through eight. There are at present active ITS troupes in more than 3,900 high schools and middle schools, mostly in the United States and Canada.  The Society recently inducted its two millionth Thespian. Students must complete 100+ hours of service or performance in our school performing arts department. Students are then eligible for participation in the state festival and even attendance/performance at the national level.
Enka proudly has one of the oldest troupes in the state--#72! We do not know what year it was instated but our troupe was reinstated under the direction of Mrs. Stanley Marino in 2008.

***The 2020-2021 State Festival will be VIRTUAL March 12th-14th. We are the host for the Regional Qualifier on January 23rd, so look for ways for thespians to get involved!
***CONGRATULATIONS to Patrick Nguyen, Jayden Parton, and Jacob Whitten who are cast members in the state production of Shakespeare's Pericles! Patrick will be playing Pericles himself!
