    Congratulations to our new State Thespian Officer!

    Bayonne High School junior Katie Harrigan has been elected to the 2019-2020 New Jersey State Thespian Board. This marks the second year in a row that a Bayonne High School thespian has been elected to the Board (BHS senior Gabby Nono is currently serving this year).  

    A New Jersey State Thespian Officer (STO) is part of the leadership team that produces the New Jersey Thespian Festival. This elite group of students pick the festival theme, plan the festival schedule and conduct leadership workshops. Other duties include ongoing outreach designed to inform New Jersey junior and senior high schools about the benefits of membership in the Educational Theatre Association and to increase the participation of these schools in the International Thespian Society (ITS). Each student member serves for one year.

    To be eligible, students must be an inducted thespian in good standing.  Students apply at the New Jersey State Thespian Festival in January and then go through an application process with resumes, cover letters and letters of reference.  The process ends with an in-person interview with senior STO's, the State Chapter Director and the STO Coordinator, Jason Wylie.

    Katie is the secretary of BHS Thespian Troupe 5093 and is a vocalist in the BHS Jazz Band in addition to performing in all BHS Drama Society and Thespian production.  She has been active in the BHS Drama Society (and it's young training program, BHS Drama Junior) since she was in 4th grade. 

    New Jersey Thespians is the state chapter of the International Thespian Society, part of the Educational Theatre Association.  It's mission is to promote, strengthen and advocate for theatre arts education in New Jersey schools.  For more information go to  www.njthespians.org
