And the winner is...

Good news from the world of competitive theatre!

Yesterday my kids performed "The Miracle Worker." The girl playing Kate was named part of the Honorable Mention All-Star Cast (eight kids total in the district), and my Helen was part of the All-Star Cast (another eight kids). My crew was named Best Tech Crew in the district, with my stage manager being singled out as Best Individual Crew Member. Also, my Annie Sullivan received the award for Best Actress in the whole competition.

Finally, we edged out a beautiful "Magic Flute" and a spectacular "Diviners" from our closest rivals to bring home the first place play award for the first time in my school's history.

Special thanks to all my NITS friends for their unwavering support and love.

Congratulations to you, your actors and your techies! That's fantastic news! Do you now advance to a new round?

No, middle school competitive theatre doesn't advance. We just have one local contest.

Which is fine with me. I kind of don't understand how the top high schools manage to work on a 40-minute show for four or five months of constant rehearsal and competition, and still keep it fresh.

I am touched that you think they keep it fresh.
