WCS Students Set Mid, All-State Theater Record

From WCS inFocus

Theater

A record-setting number of Williamson County Schools students are in the spotlight and joining the Mid-State and All-State Theater groups.

A total of 67 WCS students earned the Mid-State designation compared to 22 students in 2021. Of those 67 students, 34 were selected for All-State and another 13 students were selected as All-State alternates.

Students from around Tennessee submitted auditions or interviews for any of three categories: musical theater, acting and design/tech. The submissions were adjudicated by faculty from participating colleges. This year’s audition pool was larger than expected, and deadlines needed to be extended to review all the submissions.

“This is only the second year our students have been able to audition for All-State Theater,” said Centennial High theater director Bailey Mann. “I am so glad that they’ve been able to be recognized for their hard work. The rise in interest makes it mean even more to our students who were honored. I hope this is an event that continues to grow and benefit our students for years to come.”

Students who received the honor of All-State Theater will have the opportunity to attend the Tennessee All-State Theater Event on February 5. In addition to attending workshops and meeting other honorees, the students will be able to see performances from the top 25 students in each category.
