Students in the Terry Fox secondary drama program earned the Port Coquitlam school four awards at this month's Sears B.C. Drama Festival in New Westminster.
Fox's production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee won the most accolades for a high school at the competition, with Riley Langford taking the prize for outstanding acting in a male leading role and Sarah Smith winning the female equivalent.
The ensemble cast also clinched an award for best choreography while Justin Lapena scooped a special merit for musical virtuosity. Fox drama teacher Dan Tilsley said it was the first time Fox had represented School District 43 at the provincial level.
The festival is organized by the Association of B.C. Drama Educators.
Meanwhile, Fox will present The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee for the public on June 7 at 7:30 p.m. For more information, call the school at 604-941-5401.
