2012 Utah Shakespeare Festival Competition

Last weekend Maddy and Joey headed down to Cedar City, Utah to participate in the 2012 Utah Shakespeare Festival. Joey and his friend Ammon were one of two Duos chosen to represent the High School and Maddy was one of three Monologues chosen. The Festival is the 36th annual and is the  largest scholastic Shakespeare competition in the country. This year over 2800 students participated representing over 100 schools from Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Wisconsin, Idaho and California. Maddy and Joey were in the Cambridge Division which was for schools with enrollments of between 801 - 1700 students. They each performed three separate times and each time received wonderful feedback and critique. And, to top off the weekend, Maddy tied for 3rd place for her monologue!
