Thespian Seniors Receive Honors

Thespians Honors

The International Thespian Society is one of the first honor societies created for theatre students in high school. It was formed in 1929 and is overseen by the Education Theatre Association.

A student of theatre earns membership in the society through active involvement with the school’s theatre program Thespian Troupe by the accumulation of points in both technical theatre and performance. A total of 10 points are needed to be inducted into the troupe. Each point is the equivalent of 10 hours, or a total of 100 hours of theatre involvement.

The following seniors are members of Milton Theatre’s Thespian Troupe 6168.

Once a student contributes 600 hours of involvement, or 60 points, they pass a benchmark to become what known as an Honors Thespian. Seniors at this level receive honors cords to wear at graduation.

The following students were awarded honors cords.

The next benchmark is called National Honors Thespian. Students who reach 120 points, or 1200 hours of involvement in the theatre are recognized at as a National Honor Thespian. These students are awarded a Thespian Medallion to also be work at graduation.

The following students received medals.

At 180 Points, or 1800 hours of involvement, a student is recognized as an International Honor Thespian.

This is quite an achievement and pretty much means the student was actively involved with nearly each production at their school beginning the freshman year. We have seven International Honor Thespians to recognize this year. This student will receive a white stole to be work at graduation in addition to medal and cords.

180 Points: Haley Mahoney-Werner
180 Points: Paige Underwood
183 Points: Laura Sidwell
185 Points: Sara Underwood
200 Points: Josh Martin
201 Points: Allie Arasi
217 Points: Mary Caroline Owens

Seniors, your challenge and thespian motto: Act well your part, there all the honor lies. Milton Theatre’s 2017-18 graduating Thespians.
