Fine arts students recently traveled to Murfreesboro for the Tennessee State Thespian Conference at MTSU on January 15, to convene with over 800 arts students from across the state at the biggest event of the year.
“At ThesCon our students had the opportunity to grow creatively and in community with one another,” says CPA Artistic Director Paula Flautt.
Students saw two mainstage shows during the weekend: Any Number Can Die, a three-act comedy/mystery from Brentwood High School, and The Yellow Boat, an award-winning drama from Stewarts Creek High School. In addition to attending numerous workshops at the conference, CPA students also performed their fall, black-box production Tracks, a one-act drama about introspection, confession, uncertainty, and hope.
Last year, the Academy had the distinct honor of performing their spring 2015 production, Beauty and the Beast, on the conference main stage. Past CPA productions such as Into the Woods, Twelfth Night, and The Curious Savage were among those featured at TTC.
