Act well your part, there all the honor lies.
ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL THESPIAN SOCIETY
Commitment to theatre is what the International Thespian Society is all about. The society was established in 1929 by a group of college and high school teachers in Fairmount, West Virginia. They named their organization after the Greek Thespis, who, according to legend, was the first actor. Their guiding principle was a dedication to excellence in theatre arts in secondary schools. Since then, the society has grown into an international organization with more than two million members, but its goals have not changed: to make the schools a place for good theatre and to honor those students who do theatre well.
