Crestview High Thespians state-bound after district triumph

"We earned seven excellents this year — up from two last year, so we are really excited about that," she said. "It was our best performance ever."

"We did really, really well in our competition," Ryan said.

However, because only one excellent-scoring performance can advance to state competition, Ryan, who has performed at state level, offered the honor to his friends whose small group musical also scored an excellent.

"Taking the group would allow the most people to perform," Ryan said.

"Representing us at state in March will be Angeles Alexander, Brittany Agee, Madeline Gebhardt and Bridget Worth for their small group musical," Annette Gebhardt, Madeline's mother, said.

The girls will reprise their district-winning performance of "Paris Original" from the 1960s musical comedy "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying."

"It was kind of bittersweet performing his year because I'm a senior and will be graduating," Ryan said. "I’m still excited to go and it’s exciting to see people who hadn’t performed (at state competition) get the chance to go."
