We are so proud of these students, many of whom worked for months on their events. Kaylee Casutt says "It has been a treat to finish my senior year with this amazing troupe. I have been so determined to do my best and work to get the best results. It has been a fantasmaglorious year!"

Senior Kooper Throckmorton says, "Drama has changed my life. It's given me a place where I feel like I belong and a place where I am loved"

Drama coach Sandra Millet says, "This group of students sticks together. They encouraged and sometimes even nagged each other to work hard. They filled in the gaps when three students dropped in the two weeks leading up to Region. I am so proud of their commitment to excellence."
