ITS Troupe 4443

First chartered in 1989, Hazel Park High School's excellence-promoting chapter—Troupe 4443—became inactive in 2009, following the retirement of long-time director Mr. Ron DelBello. It was rechartered in early 2023 by new director Mr. Mark Fairbrother. 


Troupe 4443 is an invitation-only affiliation for the highest-performing members of Hazel Park Drama. To be eligible for graduation honors, students must meaningfully contribute to at least two contiguous productions, pass a Drama course, boast exemplary academic attendance and citizenship, fulfill the duties of a leadership role, and more.

Each December, we join 1,600+ other high school theatre- and film-loving students and educators at the Michigan Thespian Festival, where participants engage in active workshops and compete against themselves in Thespy events.
