Hello! My name is Jordan Smith, and I am very excited to be your International Thespian Society President! I have been a part of this club since my freshman year and have been able to watch it grow as well as the people within it. This year I am excited to help it, and the members, to be a more active club, and to give members more opportunities within AK Theatre.

Through our club, we aim to promote theatre at our school and in our community. In the past, ITS has felt like an addition on to AK Theatre, but this year I hope to make it into something that is its own thing. I hope to create more activities and opportunities for the members and have them be a part of AK Theatre without having to be in a production. I want everyone to feel like they can be a part of AK Theatre and know that there are many ways to get involved.

ITS has given me lots of amazing opportunities during my time in high school, and I want to make sure that everyone else is also able to get involved as much as I did.

I’m looking forward to another amazing year with you all!


Jordan Smith, 

ITS President
