Missouri Thespians is the Missouri State Chapter of the International Thespian Society, an affiliate of the Educational Theatre Association (EdTA).
Established in 1972, our purpose has remained the same: to aid in the advancement and improvement of theatre arts in schools in the State of Missouri. We feature Thespians from all corners of the state who share the same love and passion for theatre. MO Thespians believe in theatre – especially high school theatre as a vital growing faction of life and education for our students. Drama, compassion, intelligence, humor – all are evident in our high school and college programs. The wide range of opportunities offered by Missouri State Thespians is represented on our website Missouri Thespians. Here you will find a network of friends and colleagues – actors and techies – eager to connect with you. Furthermore, you can register for our upcoming conference, see previous award winners, view pictures, and catch the latest newsletter.
Each year, Missouri Thespians awards several scholarships at the state conference to college-bound seniors, each of whom are chosen by a panel of representatives, for their outstanding technical or theatrical abilities and contributions and for their aspirations as future theater educators.
