Jr. Thespians participate in district Festival

Thank you to all the parents, grandparents, and friends who turned out at Godby High School on November 6th and 7th to support our Thespians! It was great to have so many well-wishers in attendance. The play 4 a.m. received high marks for acting and an Excellent rating over all. Emily received a Superior rating on her Solo Musical piece, and Excellent ratings were earned by the pantomime Supersquad, the small group musical Officer Krupke, Emma's monologue, Trevor's musical theater solo, Riley and Grayson's duet acting scene, and the ensemble acting scene of Trevor, Robert, and Kevin. The kids enjoyed their ribbons but most importantly learned how to work hard together, analyze text, challenge themselves, and function as a team.

We appreciate all the support from family and friends to make this possible. Special thanks are due to Art McConnell and Casey Gooding, who provided expert coaching; to Ursel Homann, for making sure our Keystone Cops looked spiffy and bringing snacks to rehearsal; to Jodi Wilcof and Lerena Fleck, who created custom t-shirts so that we could enter the festival in style, sewed costumes, and helped at rehearsals; to Sue Ray, our most experienced chaperone; and to Sarah Wilson and Jenn Branham, who made sure no one went hungry.
