HARRISON, N.Y. -- Members of the Harrison High School Footlight Players attended the student conference of New York State Theatre Education Association last month.
The 15 HHS students who attended worked with licensed teachers from around New York state on a host of theater topics, including, audition techniques, working on camera, working with wigs and makeup, advanced choreography, stage management, costumes, dancing, technical, self-confidence, as well as vocal and acting techniques.
Lynn Fusco, Harrison Central School District's director of fine and performing arts, and HHS chorus teacher Meg Test also attended.
“The opportunity was made available to our high school performing arts department on a first-come, first-served basis to promote diversity among grade levels and experience,” said Fusco. “Not only did students gain practical knowledge that they can now directly apply to their work in our programs, but they experienced transformations as both artists and people.”
