    I was approached by admin to start a thespian troupe here. Great news. However, they want me to get this running in January, beginning of 2nd semester. Does it make sense to start this half way through the year...during pandemic times... We still can't mix grade level bubbles here, except for 11th and 12th grade.
    I'm all ears!

    Hi, Marta

    We're glad to know you're interested in bringing the honor of ITS to your students and school! The application to activate a troupe is open year round, so chartering in January will be easy! More information about the actual activation process can be found on the Activate a Thespian Troupe page of the website.

    If you have specific questions about the logistics of chartering at your specific school, I'd recommend reaching out to us via email at Our team will be happy to provide guidance along the way! Please let us know how we may assist.
