Klein ISD Theatre Students ‘Break a Leg’ at Texas Thespian Festival
Congratulations to our Klein ISD high school theatre troupes on their recent success at the Texas Thespian Festival.
Texas Thespians hosted over 10,000 attendees at San Antonio and Grapevine festivals the week before Thanksgiving break. Students showcased their skills, competed with the best in the state, and earned scholarships for their performances.
“Every time I take students to the Texas State Thespian Festival, I walk away with joy in my heart,” Klein Collins Theatre Director Robin Welch-Wood said. “I am so proud to see my students surrounded by, learning from, and sharing with many other talented and excited Theatre students and teachers from around the state.”
Students like Alex Dore of Klein High School were excited to attend the festival and looked forward to all the skills they would add to their arsenal by the end of the event.
“Throughout my high school experience, I have participated in three Texas Thespian Festivals! The opportunity to attend these workshops helped me gain the skills necessary for my college journey,” Dore said. “Other than the acting and social benefits earned from my Texas Thespian Festival participation, I had the opportunity to audition for a Texas Thespian scholarship and was granted $500 for my excellence in performing and International Thespian Society servitude. I am grateful for this scholarship as it is something I desperately needed and will help me pursue my college dream.”
Congratulations to the following students for their success at the festival. Our Klein Family is so proud of you.
