Widely recognized for its entertaining and innovative productions, The Bush High School Theater Department has been selected to perform at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the world’s largest and most prestigious arts festival.
The Bush High School Theater Department’s performance will be showcased at an American High School Theater Festival (AHSTF) venue in Edinburgh, Scotland, during August 2017.
“The Bush High School Theater Department was selected by the ASHTF Board of Advisors to represent the United States, Fort Bend ISD and Bush High School as part of the 2017 AHSTF program,” said Director of Theatre Steve Carpentier.
“AHSTF selected the department based on our body of work, our community involvement, and our program excellence.”
The Bush High School Theater Department’s drama students, their parents and Bush High School teachers have launched a fundraising drive to enable the students participation in the 2107 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
“Our fundraising goal is $150,000, which will send 20 students to participate in the performance of a lifetime,” said Carpentier. “All donations are welcome, large and small.”
Those wishing to support the student’s performance at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe are invited to visit the Bush High School Theater Department on the web at www.fortbendisd.com/domain/4401.
