The Orangewood Christian School Thespians troupe allows our 9th-12th graders to compete in group and individual events at the district and state levels. OCS Thespian Troupe 4749 is proud to be a part of Florida State Thespians, District 5.

 

OCS Thespians are a part of the International Thespian Society (ITS). ITS is designed to be an honorary organization that recognizes and rewards excellence among the participants in the theatre arts program. Thespian membership should be viewed as an honor and a goal to which OCS Theatre Arts high school students aspire.
