Artsview teen performers win roadshow awards
"The group was recognized by other company leaders as being exemplary in their behavior and actions toward others."
LONGVIEW When the Artsview Children's Theatre company took their production of Ed Monk’s Booby Trap to Lewisville recently, they did not come back empty handed. Their performance at the 17th annual Texas Non-Profit Theatre Youth Conference earned individual and group awards.
The entire company received the Spirit Award for their positive attitudes during the week and their encouragement of all the other groups attending the conference. Judah Armour of Kilgore, as well as Megan Stevens and Caroline Bump of Longview, received Individual Spirit Awards. Caroline Bump also received a Teacher’s Choice Award for her excellence in participation during the conference workshops. An All-Star Cast Award went to Megan Stevens and Judah Armour for their first-rate performances in Booby Trap.
This group performed Booby Trap for local audiences in May before taking their show on the road to the conference.
ArtsView’s Artistic Director, Laura Bowen, who directed the production, said, “TNTYC is one of the most valuable theatrical learning experiences that a young person can have. Our kids forged new relationships and had lots of fun during the conference. More importantly, the group was recognized by other company leaders as being exemplary in their behavior and actions toward others. We are very proud of them all!”
