ALA Gilbert North 7-12 is proud to be a part of the International Thespian Society (ITS) as Jr. High Troupe #89578 and High School Troupe #8721. The International Thespian Society is the honor society for junior high and high school actors and technicians, honoring their hard work, discipline, and diligence. We also help with scholarship auditions for students who are interested in attending college.
Students who are interested in joining the society earn “points” by volunteering, serving, and performing. Students who earn enough points are inducted into the society every spring, and students who go above and beyond during their time in high school theatre earn honor chords to be worn at graduation.
