Good Evening Parents and Friends!
I hope everyone thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful fall weekend!
Halloween is nearly here!
TheatreCHS had a wonderful time in Norfolk at the annual VTA High School Theatre Festival and Conference. Most impressive were the number of seniors this year who received numerous callbacks from colleges and universities:
- 7 Seniors had interviews and callbacks from: George Mason, JMU, Longwood, Radford, Emory and Henry, UVA, VCU, VA Tech, Randolph Macon, Averett, Sweetbriar, ODU, CNU, Davis and Elkins, Ferrum!!
- Several were offered acceptance on the spot as well as scholarship opportunities!
- Our Technical Theatre Program shined!
- We received 2nd Place in the Olympics!
- CHS took 3rd in the scenic design competition.
- Students met and heard wonderfully useful panels about acting and the business of theatre as well as hands on dance workshops with acclaimed Broadway veteran and producer, Enrique Brown, attend the always hilarious Seth Rudetsky’s musical theatre extravaganza and book-signing, and of course, the icing on the cake was getting to meet and attend a panel discussion with Tony Award winning Lin-Manuel Miranda!
To countless people for making this such a special weekend for our students.
To the Chaperones who made the trip a breeze for everyone.
To the students in the technical theatre programs as well as students who participate in tech Tuesday for their contributions!
And… We still have a show to do!
