Junior Thespian Festival Recognitions
This past Saturday was the first time for our Theatre students got to attend the Junior Thespian Festival in North Texas. They were able to participate in various workshops of their choosing from Commedia Dell'arte to Musical Choreography and everything in between!
Several of our students choose to compete in IE's, or "Individual Events". These students prepared and rehearsed on their own outside of class and then had to perform in a room of 3 Adjudicators and students from other schools. Each judge gives a rating of Fair, Good, Excellent, or Superior. The three scores are then tabulated to give a final rating.
If you have the following students or see them in the hallways, please congratulate them on a job well done!
Reece R and Jacob S - Received a rating of SUPERIOR for their musical duet.
Audrey B and Zoe S - Received a rating of SUPERIOR for their musical duet.
Alana V, Jelai J, and Chloe R - Received a rating of EXCELLENT for their small group scene
