 HISTORY OF THE INTERNATIONAL THESPIAN SOCIETY

High school students in West Virginia founded the International Thespian Society in 1929.  It was created to provide legitimacy and support for international high school theatre programs.  Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, the Society now has an active high school membership of well over 5,000.  Lake Braddock joined this prestigious society in 1991 and has participated annually in the State Thespian Festival and the International Festival.
