Welcome Home, Thespians!
The International Thespian Society was established in 1929. The organization is named for Thespis, the ancient Greek who, according to legend, stepped out from the chorus and became the first actor.
Troupe 1794 was founded in 1980 under the direction of Glenn Edwards and guidance of Chris Bundy. Since this first induction, we have honored hundreds of students who have excelled in theatre, and established a legacy of the importance of theatre education in southern Indiana.
Students become inducted thespians by earning points through their participation in high school theatre. Once a student reaches the milestone of 10 points, or 100 hours of work, they earn the honor of becoming an inducted thespian.
