“Every year that we induct new members into ITS, I am astounded by how many students are so invested in the theatre program. Listening to the seniors talk about how much the theatre community means to them and hearing everyone enthusiastically cheer for each other as their name is announced reminds me of the power of having a place where you feel like you belong. It’s my absolute favorite thing about our theatre department.”Susan Jung,
CHCA Artistic theatre Director
