On Wednesday, December 12th, several THS performing arts students attend an invitation only google meet sponsored by the Frederick County Academy of Fine Arts (AFA). Mr. Moore was able to procure two dozen seats for our students in the meet and students had to sign up to be involved in this activity. During the meet, Ms. Mason spoke extensively about her career, her struggles, and about her experiences playing Glinda in the Broadway musical Wicked. Ms. Mason also shared insights about the performing arts business and offered advice on how to navigate the difficulties of choosing a career path in the performing arts.
After attending the meet, the students then shared their takeaways with the students in Mr. Moore’s classes who were unable to attend. The overall experience was informative and inspirational according to the students who attended. Pictured below are several screenshots taken during the presentation.
