What is a Thespian?
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. Thespians enjoy the sense of belonging and recognition inherent in being inducted into an honor society. Thespian membership encourages them to practice their craft and to grow as a person. The skills that they learn from a quality theatre arts education—creativity, self-confidence, leadership, communication, and interpersonal skills as well as specific theatre skills—will benefit them in their school days and beyond.

How to become a member:
Everyone is welcome to attend our monthly meetings in room HE5. However, to become a member of Franklin High School's Thespian Troupe, students need to participate in at least two productions and acquire the appropriate amount of technical theatre points according to the International Thespian Society point system. As a member you will receive a year-long subscription to Dramatics magazine, a membership card, access to state of local ITS (International Thespian Society) events, the right to nominate of be considered for ITS awards, scholarship eligibility and many additional benefits. Once you have fulfilled basic requirements and paid the fee, your name will be on the roster and you will be a member of the Thespian Club and inducted into the Thespian Society at a private ceremony.
