MPA was 1 of 173 schools to attend the Illinois High School Theatre Festival! The events began with an Opening Production starring Broadway stars Tyce Green and Wilson Jermaine Heredia. MPA students took part in various workshops including: an audition master class with Mr. Green and Mr. Heredia, an improvisation workshop, meeting with the production staff of next year’s All-State production of Sweeney Todd, and getting to see this year’s All-State production of Rent. Senior Will Callihan said, “the festival proved that high-school students have so much potential and are capable of producing great work.” What a wonderful opportunity for our students!
