The International Thespian Society (ITS) is a universal theatre honors society with chapters established all over the globe, including at Centennial High School. Sponsored by Centennial’s theatre teacher and director Ms. Kathryn Carlsen, the club meets on the first Wednesday of every month. Currently, the club is discussing this year’s annual fall play, Almost, Maine, which will show November 16-19.
On November 1, the club discussed the current point system, in which every member must earn 8 credits each quarter to remain in the honor society, and the multiple ways an individual can receive credit, such as by seeing a show or attending set build on Saturdays.
Senior and International Thespian Society President Ethan Kinstler divided the club into separate committees consisting of the various components that contribute to the production: Marketing, Design, Costume, Props, and Set. He requested each board to create a schedule of due dates to complete their designated assignments, including the creation of the playbill, the building of the set, and the possession of costumes and props, in pursuance of making the show’s performance next weekend something to remember.
More information about the show, and about ITS, can be found at chstheatre.org.
