Drama Students at State

Twenty-one JHS students attended the State Drama Competition and Festival in early April, with seven of them competing in the state showcase. Congratulations to the following Drama students:

  • Angel Dauvin ’25 & Madeline Ward ’25: Duet Musical

  • Sage Bonta ’24: Solo Acting

Madeline and Angel received top scores and were invited to perform in the final showcase before 1,800 fellow Oregon thespians. All seven students qualified for the International Thespian Competition.

Amelia Loop ’24 and Campbell Shaw ’24 competed in the Tech Entries: Amelia in Stage Management and Campbell in Lighting Design. Both received all “Superiors” (the highest scores) from the judges and qualified for the International Thespian Competition.

In the Playwriting Competition, Kekoa Dowsett was selected as a State Finalist for his script, 1000, and was one of five playwrights invited to perform a staged reading of his play at the Festival. 1000 was also an International Thespian Competition qualifier. The staged reading of his play starring Abby Wentworth, Keara Anderson, Michael Nguyen, Lars Hoffbeck, Alise Fingal, and Kekoa received all “Superior” ratings.

Congratulations to Piper Lavey ’24 who was one of only five theatre students from Oregon to receive a 2024 Oregon Thespians Scholarship. This award goes to an exceptional senior who is an active thespian and plans to pursue theatre in college. Piper will attend Boston Conservatory at Berklee College of Music this fall.
