Sara Nava, (pictured left) has been invited to perform at the International Thespian Festival after giving a superior rated performance in musical theatre during the Alabama State Thespian Festival at Samford University. Only 80 students from among the 1,000 state participants were invited to the national festival.
The International Thespian Festival is a celebration of student achievement in the performing arts. Organized by the Educational Theatre Association and hosted by the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, the summer Festival is a one-of-a-kind, weeklong immersion experience in singing, dancing, acting, designing, directing, creating, writing, and memory-making. The Festival features workshops presented by theatre professionals, individual and group performances, programs for technical theatre students, and opportunities to audition for college admission and scholarship.
CHS Drama students Robert Henshaw, Drew Fillinger, Riley Adams, Whitney Heaton, Justin Weygand, Josh Bowden, Daniel Imbush, and Ashlyn Stephens also participated in the state festival after qualifying during district competition. At the state festival these students also honed their talents through participation in workshops, performances and networking events.
Mr. Wayne Cook is the Drama sponsor.
