Paden City High School Thespians Awarded
Over the summer the Paden City High School Thespian Troupe was selected to participate in the 2020 International Thespian Festival.
This event is held annually and showcases some of the top theater students from numerous countries.
The festival was originally scheduled to be held at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN but due to Covid-19 restrictions it became a virtual only event.
The troupe showcased actresses Anya Glover, Serenity Strother, Breigh Stillwagner, and Rachel Price in a delightful 50’s era musical entitled “The Marvelous Wonderettes.” Aided by crew members Talon Chambers and Cameron Dennis, the troupe was awarded this honor based on their regional performance held on February 6, 2020.
Unfortunately, this became the only public performance.
The performers are now in the process of bringing the show back for one final performance in the following months.
Though the troupe participates independently for state and international events, they also join the Magnolia Thespian Troupe to form The Griffin Players.
