Arizona Thespians are a group of teachers, students, and professionals who are dedicated to promoting theatre education in our schools and community.
The Arizona Thespian Society was incorporated in the mid 1970’s. We are a Region I Chapter affiliated with the International Thespian Society and the Educational Theatre Association. Over the last three and a half decades, Arizona Thespians have provided services to over 50,000 adolescents and hundreds of educators. Our efforts have been recognized by the Governor’s office for the last 10 years by way of a State Proclamation which states that November is designated as “Theatre in our Schools Month” in honor of our annual state conference. This designation clearly signifies the importance of theatre education by our legislation.
To create the leaders of tomorrow through the educational and theatrical experiences to promote the advocacy of the Performing Arts and develop strong communities.
NOTE: All students must be affiliated with a school and accompanied by a certified teacher from that school to attend all thespian events.
