Ep. 53: High School Theater Program Sets Sights on Southeastern Theatre Conference

Students from the Sanderson High School Theatre Ensemble in Raleigh are on their way to Louisville to represent the Triangle at the Southeastern Theater Conference. Their production of Oliver Lansley’s play ERNEST AND THE PALE MOON is one of two productions selected to represent the state of North Carolina next month at the national competition in Kentucky. But as you will hear, this opportunity is just the icing on the cake for these students who have discovered who they are through the theater program.

The students will present an encore production of ERNEST AND THE PALE MOON on January 30th. Proceeds from this production will benefit their trip. For more information or to support the Sanderson Theatre Ensemble, visit
