Coral Springs Thespian Troupe 0704 received top honors at the Thespian District 7 One Act and IE Festival at Deerfield Beach and Stoneman Douglas High Schools from December 2nd to 3rd.

     The troupe won Straight Superiors, the highest honor a troupe can receive, for a One Act from their fall play, “The Children’s Hour.” They also received the Alternate Critiques Choice Awards at the One Act Festival, meaning if one of the winners from the Critique Choice winners doesn’t attend the state competition, Coral Springs can perform in their place. Junior Michelle Holguin won Best Featured Actress, and junior Yasmine Harrell received an All Star Cast trophy. The technical team won a superior.

     The last time the troupe won straight superiors was in 2014, and the achievement can attributed to a number of changes.

     “We practiced on our own, during class and we had rehearsal three days a week,” junior Amanda Smith said. “We had a lot of fresh faces and overall our cast was a lot more committed.”

     At the Individual Events festival, the troupe won 17 superior awards and 12 excellent awards.

     “Doing that well at districts was especially amazing to me,” senior Spencer Nicholson said. “Moving from a totally different program my senior year, it’s nice to know that when I leave I know they’re going to do great in the years to come.”

     Junior Brittany Gootar won the Critique’s Choice for Choreography and will be one of 19 to represent the district at states.  This was the first time the award was given at the festival.

     “I am elated at the success of my students,” drama teacher Lucia Deus said. “It’s only going to get better from here.”
