On May 3, the end of year drama banquet took place. Students were recognized among their peers for outstanding work in theater productions and inducted into the International Thespian Society (ITS).

The event began with a general recognition of the actors and technicians involved in each of the year’s major productions as well as the smaller events produced by the school’s acting classes.

Awards were handed out for going above and beyond in the different shows.

Makayla Voris, freshman and actor in the spring play Tartuffe, was recognized for her improvement and skill in that play. Voris said, “I honestly didn’t think I was going to get the award. I feel great.”

Senior officers of the school’s chapter of ITS gave speeches and inducted new members.

Freshman Sydnee Goings was one among seven who were inducted. Goings said, “I’m very excited, because theater has been a big part of my life for years and I’m glad that I get to continue that and be a part of it.”

Natalie McNeely, sophomore, said, “It’s a conference that they have every year, where they go there and they do a bunch of stuff with other ITS members. There’s people on Broadway who are ITS members. You have to have a certain amount of points to be involved, we’re celebrating that they had enough points to join that society.”

Once you join, you’re in it for life. Many famous actors and celebrities are a part of ITS.
