Chiles High School is proud to be a member of the International Thespian Association (ITS).  ITS is an international organization that recognizes students for excellence in theatre arts.  You do not have be enrolled in a theatre class to be a member of drama club.  See the upcoming events for meeting dates and activities. You do not have to be in a theatre class to become a thespian.  But, you do need to be in a theatre class to go to District or State Thespian Festivals, and the Florida Theatre Conference. Link to Current Thespian Points.


We are a proud supporter of Broadway Cares Equity Fights Aids.  This year our troupe earned $500 toward the Thespian funded charity. We will hold several events throughout the year to raise money toward the Thespian State goal.  Last year Thespians across Florida earned over $80,000!!  Go to BroadwayCares.org for more information.
