April 11, 2019
Essex High School will represent the state of Vermont in the 2019 New England Drama Festival, hosted by the New England Drama Council (NEDC) and the Rhode Island Theatre Education Association (RITEA), from April 15-17.

Following successful showings at the regional and state festivals, Essex High School was chosen by the Vermont Drama Council as one of two representatives for the state to advance to the New England festival. EHS performed Frankenstein, the famous thriller about the creation of a monster creature.

"We are so excited to welcome Essex High School to the New England Drama Festival and Rhode Island," said Richard Sylvia, RITEA President. "The festival is an opportunity to connect high school thespians across New England in a shared sense of community and art, and we hope Essex will feel at home in the Ocean State.”

Essex High School will perform on Tuesday, April 16 at 7:10 p.m. All performances will take place at Cranston West Alumni Auditorium on the campus of Cranston High School West in Cranston, Rhode Island. Tickets for the festival are general admission and are sold by block, day, and full festival.
