We are sold out! Thank you to everyone who made reservations!
For the third time in four years, our one act play has advanced to the state competition. Women of Lockerbie won the regional competition and will next perform at the state competition on November 12. Kenzie was named Best Actress, and Joshua was named Best Actor (matching our sweep in 2014 for Five Kinds of Silence). The cast was also named Best Ensemble, making a sweep of all of the acting awards.
She is always so nice and kind to everyone! She never “does nothing;” she’s always on task and helping out every way possible! I love having her in class!
Tynan is also our publicist and designer, and has designed the posters, programs and t-shirts for our last four productions.
She is a princess! I’m so happy for her getting the role of Cinderella because she works so hard for both drama and chorus and I’m so happy she’s my friend ♥ . No one is more deserving of that role.
Claire is also the Thespian Society president this year and has already given so much to the program.
Honorable mentions go to:
Morgan W: I’m so amazed by her talent. She helped me with my confidence and nerves and she’s an amazing person for moral support.
Jaclyn B: She is uber nice and is helpful to everyone.
Clay: he’s nice and encouraging and is happy to help anyone with whatever they need.
Olivia B: She is constantly growing as an actress and continues to stretch further out of her comfort zone.
Aaron B: For his incredible marksmanship.
We have two Students of the Week this week. The first is Margo H.
From her nominating slip: I want to nominate Margo Heath for the Drama Student of the Week for her outstanding audition for Cinderella. Her monologue and song were over the top and left a lasting impression on me. Along with being an amazing and helpful crew member, Margo also keeps everyone smiling and laughing! She is inspirational and uplifting to everyone she comes in contact with. Thanks Margo!
The second is Audrey L (aka Tech Goddess).
From her slip:
She pushes herself to improve and audition despite her stage fright. She doesn’t accept that doing 10,000 things for the theatre is enough and always looks for the 10,001st thing to add. She’s all around so crazy talented and crucial to the success of our shows. Plus, she’s an amazing person.
There are three honorable mentions:
Josh S, for always giving honest feedback and being an amazing actor.
Collin T for “encouraging me to try my best. He encouraged me to try out for my first play…ever!”
Kenidee S for being an excellent person and a great actor, and a funny friend to be around.
All cast members must attend a meeting on either Tuesday September 20 or Friday, September 23. The meeting will be after school and should last 15 minutes. There is some information and sheets that you will need to get to your parents, and a few other things Ms. Potter and I want to go over.
Thank you to everyone who auditioned. This was easily the largest group we’ve ever had audition for a show. If you would like feedback on your audition, please feel free to talk to Ms. Potter or me. Many of the ensemble members will end up with a few solo lines.
Cinderella: Claire H
Fairy Godmother: Kenzie
Stepmother: Claire A
Joy: Morgan W
