My name is Rachel Rudolph, and I am the president of the International Thespian Society this school year. I am absolutely thrilled to be leading the club that I have loved being a part of for the past four years. I am honored to be surrounded by so many incredible students and faculty who care deeply about the arts.
Being an active member of the International Thespian Society provides club members and inducted thespians incredible friendships, social skills, and leadership experiences. My fellow officers and I cannot wait to embark on this voyage with everyone and to (fingers crossed) get back on stage with you all!
There are many questions to be answered when entering this upcoming theatre season, whether those questions are regarding the shows that will be put on or if we will be permitted to meet in person. I can assure that ITS will remain a welcoming, exciting space where you can share your creativity with others. We plan to have various amazing performance opportunities. This new school year is filled with changes and new beginnings. With these fresh starts, I am so proud to be a part of carrying on the traditions of Ardrey Kell Theatre, while also navigating new ways to embark on our creative journeys.
