Three Fayette schools captured top honors in the Kentucky Theatre Association’s central region and qualified for the 2018 state festival competition Nov. 16-18 in Madisonville. SCAPA students from Lafayette High School placed first with “The Taste of Sunrise,” Tates Creek was runner-up with “Trojan Women,” and Paul Laurence Dunbar was third with “The Shape of the Grave.” In addition, three students made the Oct. 13 regional’s all-star cast: Kieshaun Butts of Lafayette, Natalie Hayslett of Tates Creek, and Lydia Sexton of Dunbar.
Groups from host Bryan Station High School, Henry Clay High School, Frankfort High School, and Woodford County High School also performed in the central region’s festival.
At the state conference, as many as 12 qualifying schools will present their 45-minute productions in front of their peers and a panel of judges as they compete for awards. Schools that did not advance are also encouraged to attend not only to see the other shows but also to take part in the exciting workshops and meet with representatives from area colleges and universities.
