A good attitude toward theatre is very important and taken into consideration when becoming a Thespian. It took a minimum of 100 hours of acting and working on crews to become a member of the International Thespian Society. There were 17 members who belonged to the Ames High chapter, ‘‘The Masque, " and more were always being accepted. After becoming a Thespian they were expected to have a regular participation in drama and continue a general interest in all work. Thespians did not only work and produce plays but took part in many community activities. In the fall they painted faces on children for a small fee at Art in the Park. They also attended '' Three Penny Opera,” ‘‘Habeas Corpus, " and “Fiddler Left: ‘IS THIS GUY SERIOUS?” Poking fun at Tim Haviland is Kent Varnum while he works diligently jn one of the many sets for an upcoming play.

Many more activities had been planned throughout the year. “The Drama Department at AHS is one of the best in the Midwest because it gives students a chance to become involved in plays out of the ordinary, such as: “Medea,” ‘‘Dark of the Moon,'' and many others from past years, " remarked Greg Gerstein. Many crews are needed before a play can be performed successfully. The crews included: lights, sound, props, publicity, costumes, make-up, and scenery. Different students were crewheads or co-crewheads for each of these divisions. ‘‘The fun thing about the Drama Department is that everyone is very dedicated to drama and theatre in general, and even if people forget the plays and the lines they've said, the experience they've gained while here will stay with them for the rest of their lives, " said Kent Varnum.
