Congratulations to Avry Fontanez, Lake-Sumter State College, who was selected as our Theatre Division Student of the Month for March. She was nominated by Dr. Scott Hopkins.
Here’s what Dr. Hopkins shared with us about Avry: “Avry absorbed the complex and emotional language of Shakespeare's Laertes in Hamlet. She brought passion to a role that demanded an inflamed beau sabreur, an impulsive youth in the flourish of vibrant power. Her dedication to learning and perfecting the swordplay and stage combat illustrate her willingness to throw herself into a new role and developing the skills to bring characters to life. Avry offered a passionate and focused presence to rehearsals, encouraging cast members to attend and participate. She pushed cast members to learn lines and worked tirelessly with Hamlet to learn swordplay, rehearsing the dancing combinations of stage combat.”
Congratulations to this outstanding student, and our thanks to Dr. Hopkins for taking the time to nominate her for this recognition.
