[ LETTERING IN THEATRE ]

A theatre letter is earned after 60 total points have been accumulated. 

  • Additional theatre letters may be earned by accumulating at least 20 points in one school year. 
    • Students do not have to be inducted in order to letter in Theatre.
    • Only one letter may be earned per year.
    • Points recorded after a letter has been earned do not carry over toward lettering in the next school year.

Submitting points toward a letter is the students' responsibility. If you do not letter during a given school year because you did not log all of the points you earned, you must wait until the next school year to letter.

  • Please update your point records in a timely manner. Unless you are submitting points for the first time, points earned during previous school years WILL NOT be added to your official record.

[ GETTING INDUCTED into I.T.S. ]

NOTE: Members of Junior Thespian Honor Society will automatically be inducted.

REQUIREMENT 1:   10 ITS points are needed to become a member of the DCC ITS troupe; these are called your "Induction Points." 

  • Up to 5 induction points can be earned before coming to DCCHS, but the other 5 must be earned during full-length DCCHS productions.

REQUIREMENT 2:   Your induction points must come from more than one theatrical category.

  • For Instance, if you only have 'Acting' points, you will have to earn at least one point from another category, such as 'Production,' Directing,' or 'Business.'

REQUIREMENT 3:   Your induction points must come from more than one full-length production.

  • Two one-act productions may take the place of a full-length, as long as they are official DCC Theatre productions.
