|North Reading High School Masquers Club||
On Saturday, March 19th, The Masquers club competed at the semi-final round of METG's 80th Annual Drama Festival. Their competition site was located in Fall River, Massachusetts. Other schools participating at this site included (those moving on are in bold):
Joseph Case High School Tower Ghosts
Norwood High School The Real Inspector Hound
BMC Durfee High School The Mind Cafe
Malden High School American Land
Cambridge Rindge & Latin School The Dancers
Although NRHS' production of Arnold Wesker's The Kitchen will not be preogressing to the final round, several awards were presented to them at the closing ceremony. Andy Tighe, Courtney Smith, and Chandlar Metcalfe were given acting awards for their roles as Peter, Paula, and Kay, respectively. Th team was given a stage management award, and Adelaide Zhang was given an award for properties.
However, perhaps the most important recognition recieved was the BMC Durfee Stage Manager's Award. This award is presented by every host site to the school whom they believe best represents the spirit of festival. This comes through being coopertive, respectful, understanding, and having an overall positive demeanor throughout the day.
Thank you to all those who continue to support us, and congratulations to Malden High School and Cambridge Ridge & Latin School for moving on to the Final Round in Boston!!
