Sun Valley High School Celebrates Participation in the 2020 NCTC High School Play Festival: Virtual Showcase

The Theatre Department at Sun Valley High School is celebrating their participation in the 2020 NCTC High School Play Festival: Virtual Showcase. The theatre program, led by Mr. Caleb Dalby is presenting “One for All” in the Showcase. The following students were honored with the NCTC Exceptional Theatrical Achievement Award, based on their talent and contributions to the production: Callia Caputo, for her Playwriting work in the production of “One For All” and Ethan Lasater, for their Playwriting work in the production of “One For All”.

This year, nearly 1,000 students from 40 schools are performing in 57 productions in the Showcase. Performances are available for viewing worldwide now through November 20 via the NCTC Virtual Showcase website - https://www.nctc.org/high-school-play-festival/showcase-overview/

For 50 years, the NCTC High School Play Festival platform has strengthened arts education in schools by bringing curriculum to life, challenging students to do their very best work, and contributing to the development of future audiences for the performing arts. This year, theatre arts educators and students rose to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and presented their work virtually.

The NCTC High School Play Festival is made possible with support from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources; Ecolab; Lincoln Financial Group; The Beattie Foundation; and Barbizon Lighting Company.
