The Canterbury Arts Department would like to shine a spotlight on Troupe 5782 and their weekend sweep at the Florida State Thespian Festival.
It was a superior sweep for our Upper School thespians at the recent Florida State Thespian Festival, March 16-19, in Tampa. Troupe 5782 scored 'Superior' on every act brought to the festival, bringing home a total of 47 'Superior' ratings! In addition, one-act 'I Don't Want to Talk About It' received top honors, being named the best one-act in the state!
"Words can't describe how incredibly proud I am of each student," said Upper School theatre director Aaron Jackson. "I was talking to other troupe directors from around the state and they each said that this is the first time in recent history that any troupe has brought home straight superiors on all acts brought to the festival... It is a feat that no other troupe has accomplished and I could not be more proud."
Congratulations to the following thespians on their superior performances at the state competition:
