Congratulations to the entire cast of A Midsummer Night's Dream at Eastern Florida State College for being recognized as the FCSAA Theatre Division Students of the Month for March! The cast was nominated by their advisor, Jeanine Henry.
Here is what Ms. Henry shared with us about the cast: "I am nominating the entire cast of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM! We left for spring break expecting to perform in April but the play was canceled due to concerns related to the coronavirus. These students could have just walked away but they came together as a team to create a Zoom recording of the production. They have met daily online to rehearse and have found costumes in their closets and created props from everyday household items. I am impressed with their joyful spirits, sense of camaraderie, and the ways that they help one another. They have continued to improve their performances and are making creative choices related to acting on Zoom. They are practicing EFSC’s core abilities at a high level: working cooperatively, thinking critically, solving problems, processing information, and modeling ethical and civic responsibility. I expect excellence from my students, but they have exceeded my expectations in these bizarre times. I am so grateful for the privilege to work with them!"
