Apollo High School’s Theatre Department Wins State Honors
A big congratulations to Apollo High School’s Theatre Department. Over the weekend, they competed at the Kentucky Theatre Association High School Play Festival. And they captured a variety of awards!
The Kentucky Theatre Association High School Play Festival was held November 11th and 12th at UK, where Apollo students performed “Miss Polly’s Institute for Criminally Damaged Young Ladies Puts on a Show” by Don Zolidis.
AHS students, under the direction of April Berry, captured numerous awards. Tori Avery (an Apollo senior) took home a major honor. She was named Best Actress in Kentucky! In fact, this marks the second year in a row this honor has been awarded to a student from Apollo.
Additional honors went to Lexi Johnson (a junior), who was named to the All-State cast and Gabe Bartley (a junior), who was named Best Student Director.
The team has been on quite a streak this competition season. They won first place at the Regional meet earlier this month in Madisonville, where they received superior ratings.
