Framingham High Advances to Semifinals of the State’s Drama Festival

HANOVER – Framingham High School’s Drama Company is moving on to the semifinals of the METG Drama Festival.

Framingham was the last of eight high schools to compete in the opening round of the Massachusetts Educational Theatre Guild’s Drama Festival yesterday at Hanover High. Three high schools from each of the 14 sites move on to the semifinal round.

Yesterday, Framingham performed the play She Kills Monsters, about a woman, who gets to understand more about her younger sister who died tragically, while playing a Dungeons and Dragons game, she created.

Framingham High Drama also earned five awarded last night.

Due to the nor’easter on Friday and the Governor declaring a state of emergency for coastal communities and Cape Cod, opening rounds scheduled in Attleboro, Bourne, and Duxbury were postponed.

About 40 schools will move on to the semifinal round, once all the preliminary rounds are completed. One hundred and nine schools entered the competition.

Framingham High made it to the finals last year in 2017. Framingham High won the drama festival in 2016.

 

All schools must perform a 40-minute production.

Marian High’s Mainstagers competed in Franklin as part of the METG’s state drama festival but did not advance to the semi-final round on Saturday. The school performed Scenes from Journey to the West.
