This weekend, several Howell High School performing arts students will be showcased at the Michigan Youth Arts Festival. Members of Howell High School’s Thespian Troupe 6930 will perform at the festival May 9-11. Nearly 1,000 Michigan high school student artists have been invited to attend this year’s festival. The students attending the festival were chosen from a pool of more than 250,000 across the state, based on a rigorous adjudication process adhering to exacting artistic standards.
The Michigan Youth Arts Festival is an annual festival where students in grades 9-12 participate in showcases, concerts, and workshops in creative writing, dance, film vocal and instrumental music, visual art, and theatre.
From Howell, Ben Dean and Autumn Mullins will perform a Musical Theater Duet; and Isabella Golembiewski, Jayden Monahan, Blake Strand, and Alicia Ward will perform a Group Acting Scene. The students were invited to perform at the festival after they received Superior awards at the Michigan Educational Theater Association Festival in December.
The 57th Annual Michigan Youth Arts Festival will be held on the campus of Western Michigan University. To Learn more about the festival, please visit https://tinyurl.com/y5wq499s.
