PREVIOUS MD THESPIAN RESULTS

MD Thespian Festival 2016-2017

The CHS Opening Knights had another successful year at the MD Thespian Festival!

Our production of “The Miracle Worker” won 2nd place out of 23 schools!  We earned “runner-up” status and if for any reason the first place school could not go to the national festival, we would be invited in their place.

Two of our actors, Hannah Johnson and Gillian Boline earned Outstanding Actor awards for their portrayal of Anne Sullivan and Helen Keller respectively.

Three students participated in Individual Events.

Sydney Dickinson earned a “Superior Rating” (the highest possible rating) for her individual event in Musical Theatre Performance and is invited to go to the National Thespian Festival!

Both Delaney Debinski and Cassie Saunders earned “Excellent Rating” in their individual events!  Way to go!

The following students were also recognized as All State Thespians: (Must have earned 60+ ITS points and have held a leadership position within the club)
