Theater Arts II takes top honors at Teen Arts
Ms. Miller’s Theatre Arts II class participated in the Hudson County Teen Arts competition over the weekend of May 14th. Students Gina Rotondi, Brittney Colon, Aishah Tapia, David Rivera, Ivelisse Lorenzo, Hannah Mack, Brandon Lyons, Te'Janea Bradley-Johnson, Aliyah Ramos, and Andrew Moya, placed 1st, (Top Honors) in the “Large Drama” category for a 15-minute scene selection from the play The Laramie Project. This emotionally charged play was created from two hundred interviews of people who lived in Laramie Wyoming in 1998, following the brutal robbery and beating of gay college student Matthew Shepard, who was tortured and left to die, targeted because of his sexuality. The event brought a national focus to the subject of hate crime. Ms. Miller is very proud of the piece as our students showcased a high level of maturity, integrity, and sensitivity in telling this complex story. As an educator, Ms. Miller feels the award highlights the type of complex work and higher level thinking that is being created and taught in classrooms within our public school district. The group now moves on to the state competition on June 3rd at Ocean County Community College.
