Congratulations to Ashli F!

Troupe 8105 from Helena High School sent their first performer to the International Thespian Festival in Lincoln-Nebraska in the form of Ashli F. While there, Ashli attended a week’s worth of performances, workshops, and networking events. She also competed in the Monologue category where she had to introduce and perform 2 monologues in no more than 3 minutes. In a category that contained over 100 different performers from across the country, Ashli was chosen as 1 of 3 to perform her monologue performance for the entire festival as an example of a superior performance at the Individual Event Showcase which is the highest honor a festival participant can receive! We are proud to have Ashli in our troupe and representing us to the theatrical world as the young professional she is. Below is a picture of her performance for the entire festival.

Dr. Seuss Tour!

On March 2, the Advanced Theater students at Helena High School visited the Helena Intermediate School and Helena Elementary School. Theater III students had adapted several Seuss books into short plays, cast them, and directed them with Theater II students. These were created to celebrate Seuss Day and be a part of such a literary celebration. Below are pictures from our trip of youthful glee and literacy.

Professor Visits

This 3rd 9 weeks we have been blessed to have been visited by multiple college professors who have worked with our students. Dan Laroque from Auburn, Dennis McLernon from UAB, and Alan Litsey from BSC all came and worked with our actors on different acting skills. Even Theater Tech received a visitor in the form of Kyle Moore from Montevallo as he explained the future importance of 3D printers to the world of Theater. Below are some photos from Mr. Litsey’s visit.
