I am a middle school student

Middle school students can earn membership in EdTA’s student honorary, the International Thespian Society, the only international honor society for high school and middle school theatre arts students.

As Junior Thespians, students get an early start on their journey to becoming full-fledged Thespians in high school by beginning their high school careers with half of the Thespian points required for high school induction. Junior Thespians also receive leadership opportunities at the troupe and chapter levels (per chapter policy), and a membership certificate, a personalized membership card, and eligibility to receive Junior Thespian honor items. Junior Thespians gather annually for a celebration of middle school theatre, the Junior Thespian Festival.

Help your teacher charter a Thespian or Junior Thespian troupe at your school.
