Students invited to perform at the Fringe Festival

Pictured are the AHS Playhouse Students.

Sugar Land students from Stephen F. Austin High School were hand selected by the American High School Theatre Festival to perform in Edinburgh, Scotland this summer at the International Fringe Festival, the world’s largest art festival.

Austin High School is returning to the Fringe Festival for the second time in the school’s history and will be the only school representing the greater Sugar Land area and FBISD.

Students from the Austin theatre playhouse will perform an adaptation of “Struwwelpeter”, a collection of dark German children’s stories used to teach morals. The cast and crew of 18 students, ranging from 9th grade to 12th, will be performing at the Church Hill Theater in Edinburgh.

To make this trip a reality, these students have worked to fundraise for nearly a full year.  They haven’t reached their goal yet.  Here’s where you can help.  The current fundraiser is “kickstarter.com,” which is a website that allows you make donations, (large or small) towards the trip.  In return, you may receive season passes to the AHS Theatre performances, show t-shirts and more.

To make a donation or to learn more about the cause and mission, please visit our KickStarter Page at the Fort Bend Star website article:
