Jesse C. Carson High School Qualifies at Regional Thespian Festival

On Saturday, January 8, Jesse C. Carson High School’s International Thespian Chapter hosted the Charlotte area Regionals.

This year marks the first hybrid Regional Festival for North Carolina’s International Thespian Society, allowing students to participate in-person or virtually. Students attended and participated in workshops, while also having the opportunity to compete. Fifteen thespian students from Carson High School have been selected as Thespy Award qualifiers. The International Thespian Excellence Awards, or Thespys® for short, recognizes the highest level of achievement in school theatre performance and technical theatre.

Cohen Joyner, Molly Brown, John Walters II, Ian Kirchbaum, Grayce Pittman, Sarah Rhodes, Grace Coburn, Hannah Carr, Alexander Sampson, Emma Guild, Myles Foy, Rozalyn Walton, Basil Cook, and Paige Williams represented Carson High School in competition and qualified with a rating of Excellent or Superior in events such as Acting, Musical Theatre Performance, Technical Theatre Design, and Stage Management. All advance to the State Thespian Festival in March at the University of North Carolina Greensboro to represent Jesse C. Carson High School and Rowan Salisbury Schools.

Special thanks to volunteers Rod Oden of Lee Street Theatre, and Erin B. Dougherty of Catawba College who were on hand Saturday to share information about their respective theatre programs in our community.
