YES! Jupiter High School Drama CAN ACT!

Yes, Jupiter High School Drama students can act, direct, write and produce. As an on-air quote from Rick Blackwell, of news12now, " Well the writers may be on strike in Hollywood, but local kids are pumping out the scripts." Jupiter High School drama students showcased their talents at the first annual JohnYancy Memorial Scholarship 2008 JHS Festival of Plays. The audience was impressed by the student's abilities. Out of the over 140 plays submitted to the Jupiter High drama department, the top 6 were selected and 5 were performed on February 2, 2008, in the JHS Auditorium. Each of the finalists had a budget of $75 to cast, direct and produce their play. A panel of judges selected the best performer for each play and awarded cash prizes to the best three. The first place prize of $250 was awarded to Hillary Newton, A Slice and A Soda. Second place, $175 was awarded to Samantha McKinlay, A Dosage Well Needed. Third place $125, was awarded to Alex Tammaro, Learning Magic. All Star cast award went to Cody Nance, Charlie McGrath, Ashley Hagadom, Brigette Virgil, Alex Marrone with Honorable Mention to Brandon Brown, the chalkboard man. You had to be there!

Also, at the awards ceremony, Jupiter Community High School Art students were given cash prizes for the Memorial Scholarships t-shirt and logo competition. The winners: $250 to Amber De Rose, $150 to Natalie Mc Crate and $100 to Meghan Davis. There to receive his Honorable Mention was Bo Burdge. The award winning t-shirts are available to the public for a donation of $20 each. The proceeds from these t-shirt sales will go to help fund the John Yancy Memorial Scholarships. If you would like to purchase a t-shirt or find out more about the scholarship check us out on the web site at www.johnyancyscholarship.org or phone the office at 561-758-1563.
