Lakewood Ranch High grabs honors at festival

Earlier this month, Lakewood Ranch High School's drama department participated in the International Thespian Society Florida State Thespian Festival in Tampa.

On the opening day of the event, the school performed the one act play "(Ab) Normal." Students also were involved in individual events for musical theater, acting and costume design. In all, the students received three Excellent ratings and four Superior ratings.

A "Critics Choice" was given for the school's performance of "Pandemonium" from "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee."

Also, Dane LaFemina received $2,500 from the American Heritage Musical Theatre Scholarship.

Hundreds of schools from across the state participated in this year's event and competitions, so Lakewood Ranch is pleased to have done so well. Congrats to the students that represented the school:
