On November 9th and 10th, Ms. Safford and the West High Thespian Troupe 2027 attended the Iowa Thespian Festival at the University of Northern Iowa. Highlights from the festival include Lily Hancock and Xavier Thomas taking second place in the duo scene individual event, the troupe performing a section of Romeo and Juliet on the studio stage as a showcase event. Robbie Greve took part in the All Stage Cabaret performance, participating in workshops to learn more about the art of theatre, seeing shows on the main stage, and networking with theatre students from across the state. It was a fun weekend!
