Clinton theatre brings home awards at regional competition

Five students performing in a play


Nearly two dozen Clinton theatre students attended the North Mississippi High School DramaFest competition recently in Starkville and brought home top awards. Held at MSU, the Clinton Arrow Players performed in front of highly accredited judges and 14 other performing groups. The Arrow Players won one of five Distinguished Play Awards as well as winning Best Scenic Award.

Seniors Isaac Martinolich and Ashia Crump were both named to the event's All Star Cast. Clinton students performed "The Exile and the Onion Girl" by Lindsay Price and were adjudicated in three categories - acting, directing and design. The performance landed the Arrow Players with a Distinguished Play Award with Clinton Theatre Director Sarah Hankins awarded with Outstanding Direction.

Clinton students advanced to the Mississippi Theatre Association State Competition held at the Ford Center at Ole Miss on Jan. 17-18.
