“I was completely shocked when I heard my name called for All Star/All State cast member,” Foster said.

Along with competing against other schools, students were able to take workshops throughout the weekend such as singing, auditioning, and dancing. Seniors were given the opportunity to audition for colleges as well as various scholarships.

“It was nerve-wracking auditioning for colleges, but it was a fun experience. I wouldn’t say I was scared, but I knew I had to do my very best,” Foster said.

Foster ended up getting fifteen call backs and got the chance to talk one-on-one with colleges including: VirginiaTech University, James Madison University,  Radford University, and George Mason University.

The weekend trip allowed the PG players to meet other theatre students around Virginia as well as learn from professionals.  PG Players that attended the conference included: Kevin Foster, Nellie Martin, Nicole Chandler, Justin Pulver and tech crew, Daniel Blakemore and Marianna Lopez.
