Local theater youth bestowed honor

     Seventeen local high school and middle school performers -with the Encore Theatrical Company – were recently bestowed an Excellence in Music award at the Junior Theater Festival in Atlanta, Georgia.

     Student groups performed 15 minutes from a Broadway Junior® musical selection, and were judged by leading theater professionals. Groups were rated in key areas of music, acting, dance, and overall performance. Judges offered constructive criticism to encourage further learning and growth.

     Dennis Elkins is heading up the Encore Theatrical Company’s local youth performers.  Troupe members Sawyer Stacy and Alix Thompson were named All-Star performers.
