About Us

Nebraska Thespians is one of the chapters of the Educational Theatre Association which sponsors the International Thespian Society.

Thespian troupes are chartered in public and private schools through the country. Nebraska Thespians has troupes all across the state in both public and private schools, representing excellence in theatre education.

As an educational honor society, we are dedicated to encouraging and improving the skills of theatre  students throughout Nebraska. A student can be inducted into a local Thespian troupe after earning  points by working in school, community, and/or professional theater both on and behind the stage.

Meeting Information

Nebraska Thespians has all state delegation board meetings a few times a year. Each school can bring three students with the Troupe Director as State Representatives to these meetings to work more closely on our State Thespian Festival Activities. Questions contact
