Individual Events (I.E., or the Thespys)
What are Thespians?
The International Thespian Society is the largest and most prestigious organization to recognize achievement and excellence in High School Theatre. Students who are inducted Thespians have shown achievement above and beyond in theatre, whether on the stage or behind it. The Thespians Society provides opportunities for students across the nation to showcase and advance their talent.
Each year, students from Ferris High School, or Troupe #1506, have the opportunity to participate in the regional Individual Events competition, and those who receive a "Superior" rating are able to advance to the International Thespian Festival. The troupe also attends the yearly Washington State Thespian Festival, where those who qualified have the opportunity to perform, as well as attend countless workshops and performances to hone their skills and broaden their horizons.
