Support a Troupe
Even more ways to help- support a Troupe in honor of Theatre in Our Schools Month. Thespian Relief Grants exist to help school theatre programs in need. Two types of grants are offered: a $500 grant that can be used for International Thespian Society troupe-related fees (dues and inductions) and a $1,000 grant that can be used for any theatre program-related expense, including show rights, equipment, travel, and more. New Troupe Charter Grants, Troupe Reinstatement Grants and Induction Assistance Grants are now a part of the Thespian Relief Grant program.
