CITA Secondary School Festival
I was thrilled to be a part of the Christians in Theatre Arts Secondary School Festival again this year. It was hosted by the Salvation Army's Kroc Center in Greenville, SC.
I got to adjudicate, perform and teach. I was glad it worked out for me to also sit in on the master class with Emmy award-winning and Tony-nominated producer, director, song writer, Dani Davis. Her work with the students was transformative. The group she worked with in the afternoon, from Artios Academies, won in the ensemble musical theatre competition, so they were asked to perform it again at the end of the evening program. They took Dani's suggestions and ignited the piece to a totally new level!
I'm hoping we'll draw some of those talented young people to MasterWorks this summer.
