Dorman Theatre Selected for National Showcase

The Dorman Theatre Department is proud to announce the cast of "Grandma Duck is Dead" was selected to  represent the State of South Carolina in the National Chapter Select Showcase at the International Thespian Festival in June.  Participating at the National level is by invitation only, so it is an honor received by only those troupes that represent the very best of high school theatre. This fine group of students competed at the Palmetto Dramatic Association's State One Act Play Festival against 30 other schools. The students will have less than 8 weeks to raise the money needed to pay for their trip, so watch for upcoming fundraisers to help support these extremely talented students!


Additional awards received include the following:


Zach Urban earned the Blair Beasley $1,000 scholarship and a $500 scholarship from Winthrop University. Kalista Pederson earned a $500 scholarship from the International Thespian Society.


Other Award winners include: Superior in Play performance and Excellence in Ensemble for the cast, Superior in Acting to Alex Davis and Lafayette Frazier, Superior in Solo Musical Theatre to Kit Lindsey, Trey Westbrook and Hope Rollins, 3rd place in the State Playwriting Competition and Superior in Costume Design to Zach Urban.
