The cast and crew of the Academy of Arts’ Logos Theatre in Taylors, S.C., have been invited to the American High School Theatre Festival to perform the academy’s third and newest mounting of C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, which opened at the theatre in February and travels to Fredericksburg, Va., April 7-9 and to Greeneville, Tenn., April 14-17. The American High School Theatre Festival takes place in August 2016 as part of Scotland’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which is billed as “the largest performance arts festival in the world.”
Top high school programs are nominated and must apply to participate. Applications are ranked based on recent bodies of work, honors and awards, technical ability, community involvement, philosophies, recommendations and overall dramatic excellence. Top ranking applicants are invited to represent the United States and Canada at the Fringe as members of the American High School Theatre Festival. From performance to tech rehearsal, to optional theatre workshops, the festival offers hands-on learning to participating students.
