State Festival

The Caddo Magnet Players attended the International Thespian Society Louisiana State Festival.  63 students and 8 parent/chaperones attended.  There were 24 Troupes in attendance from all over the State;   700 students in all.  Kate Howell, State Board Representative for 2016-17 helped to lead the festival with her 5 counterparts from around the state.

At their state festival professionals from nationals votes for a single one-act to represent their state at Nationals in June.
Duke Pierce directed a smash hit one act starring Brody Tolliver and Carter Rimmer. Received a standing ovation at performance.   Down Came The Rain was chosen to be the Chapter Select production at Nationals representing Louisiana.  Congratulations to director Duke Pierce and performers extraordinaire Brody Tolliver and Carter Rimmer

Out of 700 6 are chosen for STO state Board. Carter Rimmer is the State Rep for 2018-19.  This is the  13th year to have a Magnet student on the Board.
Brody Tolliver and Zoe Walker came in third in Tech Challenge.
Sarah Lord was second in Theatre Trivia.
JUNIOR, Damarius Kennedy, so impressed the judges with her costume construction that the costumer at NSU has already offered her a scholarship.  The head of NSU costume department said to me “I know that she will get many offers at Nationals but I really want her!”

The other students attended workshops, enjoyed a dance, and watched performances from around the state.  I received many compliments on the excellent behavior of our students.


Centenary High School Theatre Festival -was a success!  Hats off to Student Director, Duke Pierce who directed Down Came the Rain with actors Brody Tolliver and Carter Rimmer.  They won 1st place for performance piece!
