This year First Coast High School put on a one act show called Twitch. FCHS is to be the face on the North East school district.
“We are representing our NE Florida District at the State level,” said Dave Thomas, Drama/theatre club leader.
They impressively made it to the state level Thespian Competition. Making them one of only three schools in District 2 to do so.
“We rehearsed for the show about three months,” said Elise Huntly, who took lead female role of ‘Emma’, “and performed it for the school to get a couple trial audiences before we took it to districts.”
A one act show from FCHS had never before success at this level before. This is a big deal for those included with the show.
“This is the first time in history a one act from First Coast has ever been selected to go to state which makes all of this so exciting,” said Liana Claudio, Twitch Stage Manager.
Now that Twitch has made it to states, the show will travel to Tampa.
“We now get to take Twitch to the state competition held in Tampa in March.” Said Claudio.
The theatre club has been able to make history for FCHS. The hard work put in by the members of the theatre club show the abilities theater itself holds.
“I hope that we will bring home another Superior for First Coast,” said Huntly, “and prove that the theatre can do good things.”
