Description: Cedarburg High School sponsors Local Troupe 4822 of the International Thespian Society. The International Thespian Society is the only organization to honor secondary school students for outstanding work in theatre. Thespian membership is granted for the performance of meritorious work in theatre arts which meets the Society’s guidelines. Troupe 4822 holds fundraisers for trips and scholarships, and its members participate in the plays produced by the CHS drama department.
ITS members are directly involved in the production of the three plays produced by the drama department: a fall play, a winter musical and a spring play.
Membership: Any student is welcome to work with the group to earn points towards membership into the International Thespian Society. Students can also participate in drama department productions without officially joining ITS. To qualify for membership in the ITS, a student must participate in at least two productions each year for a total of 100 hours of work.
