FLA Theatre Wins Again!

FLA Theatre Wins Again!
Elizabeth Doerfler

On Saturday, January 7, FLA Theatre attended the Regional Thespian Festival at Durham School of the Arts. This is a Festival in which students compete in individual events such as monologue, musical, and tech events.


FLA had students competing in 9 categories and we are beyond excited to share that ALL Students competing have scored high enough to advance to the State Festival in March! Students competed in the following categories:

Costume Design- Matthew Kearns

Set Design- Anna Rule

Stage Management- Simon Law

Duet Acting- Tanner Moore and Maddie Clark

Costume Construction- Isis Washington

Sound Design- Tanner Moore

Duet Musical Theatre- Anna Rule and Josh Harding

Makeup Design- Isis Washington

Playwriting- Matthew Kearns

Our program also competed in the Tech Challenge, which is a series of events that test technical theatre knowledge and speed. Each event is timed and the team with the shortest time wins. And...

WE WON! FLA Theatre had the fastest time overall and won the Tech Challenge for our region (which includes schools from Durham, Raleigh, Apex, Wake Forest Cary, etc).

We are immensely proud of these students and the Theatre program at FLA. They will be heading to Eastern Carolina University in March to attend and compete at the 3 day State Thespian Festival with hopes that they will have some students advance to Nationals for the second year in a row. Please join us in congratulating this incredible program!
