The theater programs at all three Hilliard High Schools were awarded the gold thespian troupe award at the Ohio State Thespian Conference. This award, presented by the Educational Theatre Association to honor work done during the 2015-2016 school year, is the highest distinction available to an entire theater program. Hilliard is one of only ten theatre departments across the state to win this award.
To qualify, our theater programs had to demonstrate excellence in theatrical production, perform acts of community service, create a new and innovative project, perform at least one educational/social service play per school year, tour at least one production to multiple venues during the season, and work within their communities to create a positive impression of the program and the goals of high school theater. Each program also had to maintain and a roster of new students into the International Thespian Society – the honor society for high school theater.
We are extremely proud of these students and teachers who dedicate so much of their time to make our theater departments among the best in the state. Congratulations to everyone involved.
