The Framingham High School Drama Company will represent Massachusetts at the New England Drama Festival on Thursday, April 21.
The high school drama company will perform its award-winning Sideways Stories at Wayside School at 11:30 a.m.
The festival is not a competition but a showcase of the best drama company productions in New England, said Framingham Public Schools K-12 Arts Coordinator Donna Wresinski, who travelled with the students and drama teacher Chris Brindley to Connecticut for the 3-day festival.
Framingham was selected to represent Massachusetts by winning the Silver Cup – the highest honor in theatre for high schools – at the Massachusetts Educational Theater Guild’s Drama Festival. Framingham High is one of two schools to represent the Commonwealth at the New England Festival. Each of the New England states was invited to send two productions.
This is only the second time Framingham High has won the Silver Cup. The last time was in 2006.
The Drama Company launched a GoFundMe campaign to help raise the additional funds for the 3-day trip. You can still support it: https://www.gofundme.com/uex9szac
