Arlington High School's Colt Theatre, Troupe # 2280, is a proud member of the International Thespian Society.

As a part of Colt Theatre after school productions, students have an opportunity to collect points for the roles and responsibilities they complete each year.  Once a student has 10 Thespian Points, they are eligible to be inducted into the International Thespian Society, Troupe # 2280.

After induction, students continue to accumulate points based on how many shows they work on, and attain honor rankings.  These honors are awarded at the end of their senior year, at our banquet, and include honor cords that they wear at graduation ceremonies.

It is an honor to become a member of our troupe, and students members become leaders in our department both on and off stage.
