HPHS Theater Group Reaches Financial Goal

The Highland Park Scots Theater Group can now officially pack their bags for Scotland.  After months of fundraising activities, the $95,000 needed for the trip has been reached.   The students and their leaders will leave July 31st to attend the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland.  It is the world’s largest and most prestigious arts festival with over 1,800 performances of music, theater and dance.
Scots Theater, long recognized for its entertaining and innovative productions, was selected by the American High School Theater Festival to represent the United States as part of this year’s festival.  The production the Scots will present was written and produced by the students.
The Highland Park Scots Theater Group wants to thank all the people who helped make their trip to Scotland possible.  Contributions are still being accepted.  Contact Scott Kickhaefer at scottkickhaefer@gmail.com.
