A huge thank you to the admin and faculty that came out to support our theatre kiddos in their fall showcase and one act performance Friday night! It was a great evening of theatre and I am so proud of our kids! They put in 14-hour days every day last week and many performed twice on Friday under fairly stressful conditions! They still managed to keep up incredible energy and give great performances! We took our one act to competition on Friday at Eau Gallie High with 24 other schools in our district! Our students took the entire set, costumes, and had 40 minutes to set and perform the show and be adjudicated! I am so proud to say, we earned a SUPERIOR rating! We also earned two other awards with Chris Zizzo earning All Star Cast Member and Gabe Sanders earning overall best male cameo!

Additional congratulations to: Karis Assam, Chris Zizzo, Mary Stallard, Lauren Mays, Kiley Jensen, Alexa Grillo, Adlee Ramos, Emma Murphy, Anthony Zyren, Gabe Sanders, Davis Hattaway, Nasserie Kamara, Sydney Smith, Sophia Symeonides and Milli Patel.
