Points, Letters, Thespians

a lot of questions over the past week about "how do I get a Varsity letter in Theater?"

Based upon the Student Handbook, Theater Arts doesn't give a letter, but since the other performing arts (Band, Orchestra, Choir) all do, I think an argument can be made.

Conversely, the other performing arts groups do not have an international organization that particpation gains membership in.

I am under the impression that I am going to base a letter, should one be OKed, on the same criteria the Thespian Society uses to award ITS Points.

10 Points qualifies someone as a Thespian - for MOST productions, a single Major Role, exceptionally executed, will qualify (8 pts for the role and up to 2 discretionary points from the sponsor for the quality of the effort) - given the six week prooduction schedule, such a role would be the equivalent of being on a team, from a time commitment PoV. So, my tenetative thought is sophomores or older who 'make thespian' (10 points) will letter - freshmen will have a slightly steeper hill - if they manage thespian plus a star (20 points) as freshmen, they will letter.

More later...
