International Thespian Society (ITS) is an honors organization for high school theatre students at more than 4,600 affiliated secondary schools across America and abroad. GWA members belong to ITS Troupe 8162. The mission of ITS is to honor student achievement in the theatre arts. ITS is a division of the Educational Theatre Association (EdTA). High school inductees are known as Thespians and receive recognition based on their involvement in theatre at school and in the community. The troupe participates in school and community events including Trick or Treat so Kids can Eat. Thespians attend conferences, performances and workshops to help them develop their talents and skills, enabling them to further theatre in the school, the community, and beyond. They are also involved in community service activities throughout the year. High school students who participate in GWA theatre productions are eligible for ITS membership.
