This year, our students participated in one of eight regional Play Festivals, hosted by professional theatres, colleges and other high schools, featuring 3,000 students from 91 schools, in 128 productions.

 

Professional actors and directors watched each show and gave thoughtful feedback to the students, encouraging further growth. The adjudicators honored Wake Forest with the following awards:

 

“Why Do We Laugh?” – Rating: Superior (highest possible rating)

“Tick Talk” – Rating: Excellent

Excellence in Scenic Design – “Tick Talk”

Barbizon Lighting Award for Excellence in Student Design and Production – Jaheal Milliam, Technical Design, “Tick Talk” and “Why Do We Laugh?”
