More About STOs
Oregon Thespians is a Student-Centered organization, and is governed by a Board of Troupe Directors who work with the Chapter Director to organize and implement opportunities for students throughout the year.
This Board is joined by four STATE THESPIAN OFFICERS (STO) who serve as student representatives, along with an STO Chair who may be selected from the previous year’s STO.
State Thespian Officers must be inducted members of the International Thespian Society and are expected to attend up to five Board meetings a year, as well as the major Oregon Thespian events (Camp Thespis: A Leadership Summit, Instant Theatre, Regionals and State).
The initial deadline is March 1. See the application for additional subsequent deadlines in the candidacy process.
