• The International Thespian Society (ITS) is the Educational Theatre Association’s student honorary organization. ITS recognizes the achievements of high school and middle school theatre students. Since 1929, EdTA has inducted more than 2 million Thespians into ITS. That number continues to grow, with more than 36,000 students from around the country being inducted each year.

    How does ITS work?

    Having a Thespian troupe at our school raises the profile and stature of our Leyden theatre program, making both our school and community aware of the activities and success of our students. Students earn an invitation to be inducted into the Thespian Society by earning points for participating in theater activities.
