Scots Theatre, of Highland Park High School, has been invited an unprecedented second time to represent the state of Kansas at the American High School Theatre Festival at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August. This is a tremendous honor, but also quite costly. In a school with 85% of the student body on free/reduced lunch plans, this may well be an impossible task… And we're down to only a few thousand dollars needed to reach our goal!
That's where you come in! With your help, we'll raise the
money by the end of June, and send seven students and one adult to
the UK for twelve days of performances and life-long memories!!
Including our international premiere, we'll perform four times for audiences
at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The show, entitled PLAY IT 'TIL
WE GET IT RIGHT, was written by Topeka's own nationally acclaimed
playwright, Darren Canady (THS Class of 2000).
