In 1929, high school students in West Virginia founded the International Thespian to provide legitimacy and support for international high school theatre programs. Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, the Society now has as active high school membership of well over 5,000. Lake Braddock joined this prestigious society in 1991 thanks to the work of charter member president Brain Lovener. In 2013 the LBT Thespian Troupe #4807 returned to the State Thespian Festival for the first time in many years and in 2014 they returned to perform!
