A group of Oakwood Middle and High School performing arts students participated in the Junior Theater Festival (JTF), February 8-10, 2019 in Sacramento, taking home a trophy for Excellence in Dance. Sophomore Konark Vinod and 8th Grader Tegan Leong were also selected as all-stars for a special performance, in which Konark had a terrific solo.
JTF brings together musical theater troupes from all over the world for a weekend of captivating musical theater performance and education. Our group had a wonderful bonding experience performing an excerpt from Hairspray Jr. for theater professionals and their peer performers. Industry professionals shared their theater expertise with thoughtful feedback and sage guidance.
Students attended various workshops to enhance their skills, listened to the stories and journeys of renowned artists, and then watched as Broadway stars graced the stage with inspirational performances.
Bravo to our students for shining at the world's biggest and best celebration of musical theater!
