The International Thespian Excellence Awards (or “Thespys” for short) recognize the highest level of achievement in school theatre performance and technical theatre. The educational program, held virtually this year, gives student Thespians the opportunity to receive constructive feedback on prepared theatrical material and technical designs. All students submitted videos of their performances for adjudication.
This year, Ridgefield High School Thespians did exceptionally well. Many received overall Excellent scores (silver medal status) and/or overall Superior scores (gold medal status). They will be recognized at the Washington State Virtual Thespian Festival 2021 later this month.
Congratulations to the following students!
Avari Harrison, BriAnna Robbins, Cameron McGravey, Ella Ross, Peter Schafer, Sophia Miller and Summer Sedgley for overall Excellent scores in Solo Musical Theatre.
BriAnna Robbins and Summer Sedgley for overall Excellent scores in Monologue.
Two students received overall Superior scores (gold medal status), qualifying them for Nationals in June. We congratulate Kaitlyn St. John (Solo Musical Theatre) and Peter Schafer (Monologue) for their outstanding work.
“I am amazed by the dedication of these Thespians and am immensely proud of them!” said Kaitlyn Etter, RHS Theatre Arts Director. “They represented Ridgefield High School and our Thespian troupe incredibly well!”
Well done, RHS Thespians! Go Spuds!
