Middle school Performing Arts Lead Teacher Monica Colletti held the first ever Junior Thespian Troupe induction on Jan. 17. Eleven students were inducted into the theater honor society, which Colletti says, “represents commitment to the fantastic theater and performing arts program we have here at Harker.”
The Junior Thespian troupe is a part of the International Thespian Society, the world’s largest honor society for middle and high school theater students. Induction into the Junior Thespian program recognizes hard work and achievement within the dramatic arts.
Students interested in becoming a member of the troupe record their activities, like taking elective classes, performing in a play, working backstage on a show, or participating in summer camps or theater festivals, and are given points based on their participation. Added Colletti, “I hope that all students who love theater will want to be a member of this honor society.”
