Thespian Troupe 4872

How do I become a Thespian?
You need to participate in at least 2 productions at BHS and earn at least 10 points.  You also need to maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher.

What do I need to do in order to join?
You will need to fill out a form indicating which productions you participated in and how you participated (cast, crew --what roles).
You may also earn points by seeing productions.  Once you see a production, write a paragraph on one artistic aspect of the production--acting, costumes, set, lights...the choice is yours.  Submit this when you submit the name of the production you saw.
