Our one-act play, directed by junior Jessie Duplantis, was selected to represent Louisiana as the Chapter Select at the International Thespian Festival!

Jessie Duplantis served as a student Thespian Officer this Festival and was elected as the Student Thespian Officer Chair for next year’s festival. This is a huge honor and speaks to her leadership skills and talents.

Our three seniors who participated in the college scholarship auditions received numerous callbacks and Maggie Jaunet was awarded the Technical Theater Scholarship. Sarah Dean was awarded the 2nd place Performance Scholarship and performed in the final showcase on the main-stage.
