The International Thespian Society (ITS) is an honorary organization for high-school theatre students located at more than 3,600 affiliated secondary schools across the United States, Canada, and abroad. The International Thespian Society was founded in Fairmont, West Virginia.
The mission of ITS is to honor student excellence in the theatre arts; its motto is, “Act well thy part; there all the honor lies.” It is a division of the Educational Theatre Association.
This organization is named after Thespis of Icaria, who many believe was be the first actor in ancient Greek theatre. The English word “thespian,” which means theatre artist, is derived from his name.
