In an effort to find new ways to recognize and celebrate the talents of these students, the SUMNER PLAYS Student Theatre Challenge was created.
On September 6, 2014 fifty-eight students from across Sumner County participated in the inaugural SUMNER PLAYS Student Theatre Challenge. These students spent the day working with each other, mentored by theatre professionals, to produce a one-act play which was performed for a live audience later that evening.
On January 31st, 2015, the second SUMNER PLAYS Student Theatre Challenge will be held, this time with a focus on musical theatre performance. Students participating in this event will be immersed in a completely fabulous, completely fun day of singing, dancing, acting, directing, rehearsing and performing.
This event will begin at 8:00 am with students randomly chosen to become part of a team that will be assigned a musical production number that they will be tasked with memorizing, rehearsing and performing during the Performance Showcase beginning at 6:30 pm that same evening.
