"Thespians is a group for all people involved in theatre: actors, directors, whatever it is you're interested in, we accept." -Brian Fitzgerald
"A Thespian is a person who is passionate about the theatre in general, the acting and technical aspects of it." -Brooke Lewis
Thespians are about celebrating theatre in a way that takes involvement between schools into account, as well as broadcasting and integrating themselves into the community. We are a group that accept all people from playwrights, directors, actors, technicians, and people who just plain enjoy watching performances.
Below is the Theatre Etiquette Video played at the 2011 Regionals, and was done by the Sunset High School Thespians in addition with fellow students.
