The Fort Scott High School Theatre Department, under the direction of FSHS Thespian Director Angie Bin, has been selected to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the world’s largest and most prestigious arts festival, as part of the American High School Theatre Festival (AHSTF).
Each August, Edinburgh, Scotland becomes the most magical and exciting place on earth as performing artists from all over the world take part in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The whole city becomes a stage and visitors can view performances everywhere from playgrounds to conference rooms, from city parks to churches.
The Fringe Festival includes over 3,000 different performances of music, theatre, dance, and comedy during its three-week run.
Fort Scott High School’s performance will be showcased as a part of AHSTF in the summer of 2019.
Fort Scott High School, recognized for its entertaining and innovative productions, was selected by the AHSTF Board of Advisors, made up of college theatre professionals, to represent our community as part of the 2018 AHSTF program.
The Board reviews all completed applications and identifies the top high schools based on their most recent bodies of work, awards, community involvement, philosophies, and recommendations.
While in Scotland, AHSTF’s professional Technical Team ensures that the company’s lighting, sound, and property needs are addressed.
WorldStrides, the nation’s oldest and largest student travel company, will be making the travel arrangements for each high school group. The trip includes two days in London, England and ten days in Edinburgh in August of 2019.
A parent meeting for all FSHS performing art students interested in traveling and their parents will be held April 24 at 7:45 p.m. in Room 401 at the High School.
