Participating in the World’s Largest and Most Prestigious Arts Festival

American High School Theatre FestivalSt. Andrew’s-Sewanee School thespians will be showcased at the American High School Theatre Festival (AHSTF) in Edinburgh.

The AHSTF is part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival– the world’s largest and most prestigious arts festival. It’s an all-encompassing event with shows produced throughout the city during August- in settings ranging from tradition to open air.

St. Andrew’s-Sewanee head Rev. John Thomas is understandably proud of the theater program:

“Our community is well aware of the outstanding productions that Robie Jackson and her colleagues [John Holleman, and Katherine Anderson] have created with and for our students…We are delighted that our students will have the opportunity to take their talents to the next level by performing for an international audience.”

Selection and participation in the AHSTF comes through nomination and application.

This year marks the second nomination for the SAS theater program and the program’s first application. High school programs are identified and chosen based on their most recent bodies of work, awards, community involvement, philosophies, and recommendations.

Congratulations to SAS!
