Wow and Way to go on all of the amazing honors and all of your hard work paying off!!!

2023 Arkansas Thespian Festival, "Galactic Groove," was out of this world! Students attended various workshops and competed in events (called Thespys) related to all aspects of theatre production, including acting, singing, dancing, short film, and technical aspects. 

Workshops included dance workshops, Improv classes, Shakespeare, Stage Combat, painting techniques, yoga, Broadway classes, costume design, and much more! 

Congratulate all of these students if you see them, they worked very hard for these results! Also ask them about the workshops that they attended!
