Fall Play Cast Takes 1st Place at State One-Act Competition

The cast and crew of our fall play competed in the GISA One-Act Play competition. At the Regional level, they brought home the 1st place trophy and headed to the State competition, where they took home additional individual awards.

I am so grateful for my experience with Ms. Uterhardt through the AGS arts program. I am a better student, performer, and teacher because of my time in drama class, Category 5, the fall play, and the spring musical. I was totally prepared to participate in theatre in college, and I continue to work as a teacher for young performers programs!
