To join create a Membership Toolkit account and then complete the membership form.

Anyone who wishes to participate in our productions or other activities (except for Pope's Got Talent) must be a member of Drama Club.


Join by September 1 to guarantee your t-shirt.



International Thespian Society (ITS) 


The ITS group at each school is called a troupe. Troupe #4448 is Pope High School Theatre's honor society. Students can earn induction based on their theatrical achievement.  Over 2.3 million students have been inducted into ITS since 1929! Only Thespians can attend ThesCon!  Once you join, you're in for good.
