Two 8th graders from Roosevelt Intermediate School in Westfield were presented the Outstanding Solo Performance awards at the 47th Annual Bucks County Playhouse Student Theater Festival on May 15.
Julian Mazzola and Eve Crandall were among the 27 eighth grade drama students from Roosevelt Intermediate school who performed in 22 short comic scenes from America's Next Top Model and Other Comic Sketches, written by playwrights Rachel and Leah Solomon. More than 150 students from six schools from New Jersey and Pennsylvania participated in the performances and were able to attend workshops that included working with the Broadway performer/choreographer Lee Wilkins. Kimberly Jonny is the Drama/Public Speaker teacher at Roosevelt who worked with the students in preparation for the annual competition.
