February 2017 – STATE THESPIAN FESTIVAL
Juniors Fiona Jenkins and Charlie Jackson scored in the top 10% for their duo comic scene and qualified for the State Thespian Festival, held in Salem in April. Fiona also qualified for state in the solo acting category. Their scores were also high enough to qualify them for the National Thespian Festival in Lincoln, NE in June. They are hoping to fundraise to attend the competition, where they can also audition for college theatre programs.
Very proud of these young actors. You can see both Fiona and Charlie in featured acting roles in both the one acts, opening this week, and in Chicago.
February 2017 – CONSTITUTION TEAM WINS FIRST PLACE!

The Grant team will head to Washington, D.C. for Nationals in April. Congratulations to teacher, Jeremy Reinholt, the students and coaches for their hard work and accomplishment.

Congratulations to all the teams, their teachers, coaches, and supporters.
