Junior Thespians Shine at State Competition

Canterbury's Junior Thespians were busy over the winter break as they traveled to Orlando for the 2024 Florida Junior Thespian State Festival.
Troupe 89393 took 11 pieces to the state competition and brought home five Superior and six Excellent ratings. Special congratulations to Ari M. '28 on receiving Top Honors for his original scene writing piece The Plan. Ari is just one of two individuals to receive this honor in the entire state!

"Our Junior Thespians represented Canterbury very well," said Middle School theatre director Michael Lynch. "They had to overcome an increased shift in difficulty with new rubrics and harder adjudications. I'm so proud of each of them and how they adjusted and still achieved high ratings and honors."

Congratulations to all junior thespians on a job well done this season!
