The International Thespian Society announces the participation of Fort Scott High School, Thespian Troupe #7365, in the Trick or Treat So Kids Can Eat program.
Trick or Treat So Kids Can Eat is a national community service program to collect canned and dry goods for local charities and food banks. Theatre students from FSHS will collect food donations on Friday, October 21, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Thousands of pounds of food will be collected in one week across the state, giving organizations the ability to help thousands of local people.
The International Thespian Society (ITS) is an honorary organization for high school and middle school theatre students located at more than 4,100 affiliated secondary schools across America, Canada and abroad. The mission of ITS is to honor student achievement in the theatre arts. High school inductees are known as “Thespians” and junior high/middle school inductees are known as “Junior Thespians.” ITS is a division of the Educational Theatre Association (EdTA), a professional organization with approximately 100,000 members nationwide.
Thespians will also partner with other high school clubs including Pride to collect food. If you would like to donate to the cause and the students miss your home on October 21, please drop your donation by FSHS and address it to Angie Bin, FSHS Thespian Director.
