Welcome to the Canton High School Thespian Club Website!
The Canton High School Thespian Club is open to all students in grades 9-12 at Canton High School in Canton, Illinois. Activities throughout the year include a straight play, a musical, our Spook Trail fundraiser, and club trips and workshops. In the fall, the club elects four officers to represent the club: president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer. These four student leaders take on duties that support the productions and spur the growth of the club as a whole. These officers also serve as officers for our International Thespian Society troupe.
Students involved in our productions not only learn performance skills, but also have the opportunity to learn skills in lighting, sound, costuming, make up, props, set building, and set painting. All club members are invited to be involved in productions, even if they are not cast. Participation in club events and productions can earn students points toward induction and honors in the International Thespian Society, the honor society recognizing student achievement in theatre arts.
