Honoring Outstanding Thespians

Each year, RHS Drama seniors are recognized with a special award from the director. This honor has gone by many names through the years, but is currently called The Outstanding Thespian Award.

Outstanding Thespian

The Outstanding Thespian Award is given by the RHS Drama Director to a student who upholds the aims and ideals of the International Thespian Society. A student of theatre who performs their part as well as they can, accepts praise and criticism with grace, cooperates with fellow thespians, works for the good of the troupe, and shares their love of theatre.

senior Drama Award

The Senior Drama Award was presented by director Sharon Pape to two seniors whose contribution to the RHS Drama Program was inspirational. Recipients were usually involved in the program throughout high school and often participated in many aspects of drama - as actors, directors, and tech crew. These students were leaders in the department and positive role models at all times. The recipients were determined by a vote from the cast and crew members of the RHS Drama department.
