Troupe 5571 of the International Thespian Society is an honorary organization for the theater arts program of the St. Pius X High School. The charter was granted in 1996. Since then the society has participated in outstanding theatrical accomplishments, supported fine arts in and around the St. Pius X High School community and provided a widened perspective of the contribution of theatre arts.
Students wishing to gain membership must attain 20 points of theater service (approximately 200 hours), maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.25 or better and have attended SPX for one full semester. The sponsor and the scribe will calculate eligibility for selection in the second semester. Selected students are inducted in a special ceremony held in conjunction with the Theater SPX Banquet in May.
A senior member in good standing graduates with the ITS seal on the diploma, symbolic of membership if the sponsor validates the following qualifications:
- Cumulative GPA at the end of eight semesters of high school is 2.25.
- And the member has actively participated in theater arts.
Honor Thespians also graduate with the honor cord awarded at the Theater SPX banquet if they meet the following criteria:
- The senior meets all qualifications for “member in good standing”.
- The senior has earned 60 thespian points.
