LCHS Theatre Presents "Eurydice"

The Labette County H.S. Theatre Department will be performing their award winning, production of Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl on Friday, June 16 at 7 p.m. one last time before heading to the International Thespian Festival.  This performance is to gear up for the production and to raise money to send students to the festival 

Event coordinators anticipate 4,500 delegates at this year’s event, taking place June 19-24 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Festival’s home for more than 20 years.

Ten other high school productions, reviewed by teams of adjudicators across the country, have also been tapped to perform on Festival’s main stage. Labette County H.S. performed originally in October of 2016, were screened and selected to attend the state thespian festival in Wichita. During the performance in Wichita in January, the show was adjudicated by professionals and selected to represent the best of high school theatre this summer.  One adjudicator said about Eurydice, "Through all of the productions I have seen over the past three decades, I can't think of another one where I was educated, entertained or moved more."  LCHS' Eurydice will be performed twice at UNL on Tuesday, June 20, for approximately, 1700 students.

This year’s Thespian Festival will also include more than 200 workshops on acting, dialects, stagecraft, costuming, improv, makeup, directing, musical theatre, playwriting, and other theatre-related topics for students and educators. And juniors and seniors can get focused on their college search by auditioning for universities and scholarships.

As in years past, Festival will also offer an exciting array of late-night opportunities, including dances, improv, and talent shows. Douglas Berlon, EdTA’s deputy executive director and a member of the event coordination team, says, “The International Thespian Festival is a once-a-year, once-in-a-lifetime experience for the most passionate and engaged theatre education students.”
