Three cheers for LWR's drama club

Three cheers for Lakewood Ranch High School as it advances to the Florida State Thespian Festival in April.

The school's drama department received superior ratings across the board for its one-act play "(Ab)Normal," during the recent International Thespian Society's District 6 Competition at the Northport Performing Arts Center.

"We were also recognized for Best Tech (Messica Morrison, Cameron Helwege, Sean Knowles and Cast), Best Sound (Sean Knowles), Best Lighting (Cameron Helwege) and Best Dramatic Actor (Lucas Thompson)," writes Roxane Caravan, director of the school's drama department. "In Individual Events (Musical Theatre, Acting, Tech, we received 12 "Superior" rating and 2 "Excellent" rating. Overall, we were also recognized as "Judges Choice' in Large Group Musical, Small Group Musical and Duet Musical."

The state conference will be held April 7-10 at the David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa. I'm sure Lakewood Ranch High will be represented well!
