Under the spotlights


Amazing actors posing as they were born to.

Members of Thespian Troupe #5368 receive honorary acknowledgements from thespian conference for working very hard and very diligent. Thespian conference, shortened to Thescon, is a state conference that occurs annually and occurred from February 6-8 in Columbus Georgia. The thespians, who participated in this year’s Thescon, were named a Gold Honor Troupe. This particular award is one out of ten that is given in the state, and is awarded for outstanding work in theater production, innovative educational programming, and community service.

Furthermore, these thespians presented two astounding performances that achieved superior ratings, and were invited to compete at the International Thespian Festival this summer. This achievement makes NFHS history, because it is the first occurrence for this group and an honor that is only given to a small quantity of the competing performances.

Also, in the busy world of performing arts Raven Amerson, Michaela Bird, Sarah Clark Henderson, Rayne Crivelli, David Duncan, Hannah Gugliatta, Morgan Hester, Kellie Hill, Jake Huff, Nikki Jabieski, Kylie Jefferis, Lori Hill, Tiffany Lovell, George Kantelis, Hannah Manikowski, Bailey Maier, Madison McDearmont, and Sara Pekrul participated in the National Performing Arts Festival at Walt Disney World on February Thursday the 20th and Friday the 21st. They performed The Little Mermaid and won most creative costuming. Individual awards were given to Jake Huff who played Sebastian, Kodi McDearmont who played Ursula, Hannah Manikowski who played Narrator, and David Duncan who played a seagull. In the competition, there were individual performances with Kodi McDearmont who won female vocal singer and Hannah Manikowski who won comic monologue. Congratulations to the students who performed and those that won awards; keep up the good work!
