Thespian Troupe #640

The International Thespian Society is a high school honor society for theater students with troupes all over the world.
Shorewood High School is Troupe #640.

All points you get from working on a Shorewood show will be tallied if you are listed in the program or you sign in at a work party.  You must report any points you get for outside theater activities if you want them to be tallied as Thespian points. This includes:
     -Productions outside of Shorewood (other schools, summer, community, church, etc.)
     -Theater classes that you take outside of Shorewood
     -Plays, operas, ballets that you see (each one = half a point)
At least 5 of your 10 points must be work done at Shorewood.
