Being a Thespian is an international honor, a great addition to your college transcript, and is a lifetime membership. As a Thespian you are invited to attend the State Thespian Festival, as well as the International Thespian Festival. The State Festival has thousands of theatre students attend and compete in Monologue, Musical Theatre, Dance, Technical Design and many other areas. Many scholarship opportunities are available for seniors for college and to pay for non-seniors to attend summer performing programs.
Becoming a Thespian usually takes 1-2 years. With so many opportunities with NTA, our students can be eligible to be inducted after being involved with 2 shows. After being inducted, students will always be a troupe member but must remain active in NTA shows to participate in troupe opportunities.
