 In Lincoln, Nebraska, members of the Maricopa High School Theatre Company participated in the International Thespian Festival last week and were one of the highlights of this year’s event. Their group number “Welcome to the Rock” from the musical Come from Away was one of just seven to receive a callback after their initial performance and then went on to perform in the Showcase on Friday and Saturday, a rare honor. Troup members earned their spots at Nationals with top marks in the state competition. The ITF has grown to almost 4,500 performers, so big it has to move from Nebraska, where it has been held since 1995, to Indiana University next year.
