Get the thespian mug.
A actor or actress who tend to act in plays/musicals on the live stage. Most thespians become a thespian thru a national organization called THE NATIONAL THESPAIANS TROOP, while they are in high school/college productions. Anyone, including crew and pit can become thespians. They just need the madatory 10 credits from shows they have done/been in. Once they have the 10 credits they can be inducted into the National Troop.
"Suzie was in5 plays and earned her 10 credits. This means she can finally become a thespian!."

a conceited selfish spoilt person who pretends to enjoy plays and the theatre to impress other people. Endlessly goes on and on about how fantastic they are because they attend such events.
Me and all my fantastic thespian mates are going to the pub to have a drink with my amazing thespian mum before heading off to watch THE LATEST BESTEST play in town.

The noun causing idiots to think of two girls sloppily eating each other's mighty vaginas, when they hear mention of someone being an actor.
George: Uh..uh.. So what're you doing with yourself these days, Tina?

Tina: Well I've really taken a shine to being a thespian! I'd been thinking about it almost constantly ever since junior high, and recently my roommate Julie really turned me on to it!

George: Oh!... Well! You had better not become a Catholic or a Muslim! They really don't like that kind of thing. I'm fine with it though! Hey, if you'd like, I can help you look for a nice gay bar to hang out in! *nods supportively*

Tina: ...uh...what?!
