SMES Thespians Points from Perfection at International Festival
St. Martin’s Episcopal School’s (SMES) Middle School drama students scored four Superiors and two Excellents at the International Thespian Festival (ITF) in late June. Eight students were two points shy of a perfect score for their group musical performance of “A Musical” from “Something Rotten.” ITF welcomes thousands of high school and hundreds of middle school students each summer to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s campus to perform in the National Individual Events Showcase, compete in various technical challenges, attend shows and hone their skills in specialized workshops.
