Tri-School Theatre has been accepted to the 2014 American High School Theatre Festival (AHSTF) in Edinburgh, Scotland. This is held in conjunction with the Fringe Festival, the largest performing arts festival in the world. This selection is an honor for our school community, as the application process is competitive. We were nominated by state and regional organizations, and our application was then reviewed by a board of advisors, comprised of college theatre professors. The top programs are identified based on their bodies of work, awards, community involvement, and recommendations. The selection of Tri-School Theatre from submitted applications is based on our philosophy towards training students in theatre.
This will be Tri-School Theatre’s third time as a part of this program. We are the only high school theatre program in Orange County to participate three times in this honor. During the two-week program, students will experience London, England, as well as Edinburgh, Scotland. We will take a full-scale musical cast and crew to perform in Edinburgh as a part of the Fringe Festival. This trip is an amazing opportunity for our students, and we look forward to planning all of the details of our summer 2014 trip.
