Using the form linked below students will track their points and must submit by the deadline provided by the troupe leaders to be recognized at the Annual Banquet. 

What are Thespian Points?

A point system is used to track students' work, as high school and middle school students earn induction and the designation of Thespian or Junior Thespian, respectively. Students will then go on to earn progressively higher honors.  Students must accrue 10 points through their participation as an actor or a crew member to be eligible for induction into the Thespian Society.
