FISD Thespians Achieve at State Festival

Frisco ISD Theatre and Technical Theatre middle and high school students recently participated in the Texas Thespian State Festival at the Gaylord Texan along with 9,000 other students from across the state. 

They competed in multiple solo and group events with a chance to qualify for the National Festival and earned several awards at the event. Notably, Lebanon Trail High School’s Briana Willingham won a $500 scholarship and Vasudha Thittai won a $1,000 scholarship at the contest.

Texas Thespians is the largest chapter in the nation of the Educational Theatre Association which sponsors the International Thespian Society. These organizations assist with the training and development of young artists.

Congratulations to these students who were recognized at the event and qualified for Nationals!
