International Thespian Society
The International Thespian Society (ITS) is a division of the Educational Theatre Association. ITS is the honorary theatre organization for students in high school and middle school. ITS offers everything from varied performance venues to college audition opportunities to formal awards and scholarships. Thespians receive the highest recognition due to those who have demonstrated commitment and excellence in their school’s theatre program – membership in the world’s largest theatre honor society. 8th through 12th-grade students qualify for membership through a point system. Each time a student participates in a PCHS, community, church, or professional theatre production, they earn points based on the length of the production and the student’s role or duty. Technicians, crew members, and actors all qualify for points. Troupe officers are assigned by the Theatre Director each year and monthly meetings through the PC Drama Club are held to foster and support a successful environment for the Peninsula Catholic Theatre Department.
