Theta Alpha Phi National Theatre Honors Fraternity (ΘΑΦ) is an American recognition honor society that accepts members who achieve excellence in the art of theatre. Membership is available to undergraduates and graduate students at member institutions.
The first chapter, referred to as “Oklahoma Alpha”, was formed on December 22, 1919
at Oklahoma A&M College in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Since the dissolution of the
National Collegiate Players/Pi Epsilon Delta (ΠΕΔ) National Theatre Honor Society,
Theta Alpha Phi is the oldest honor society for theatre in the United States. Currently,
the society has around 30 active chapters. Theta Alpha Phi can only be chartered at
colleges & universities (four-year institutions).
The official colors of Theta Alpha Phi are Purple and White.
The motto of Theta Alpha Phi is “The purpose of playing is [...] to hold, as ‘twere, the
mirror up to nature” (a reference to the “advice to the players” speech in Hamlet).
