Senior Whitney Frosch shows 'em up at the T.E.T.A Auditions!

E.H.S. Senior, Whitney Frosch auditioned Saturday at the Texas Educational Theatre Association Convention with 100 other senior actors from Texas in front of 50 different Universities from Texas and other states combined. When a school is interested in a student attending their university they “call back” a student for interviews. Students are selected for interviews based on their talent, merit, resume’, and the school’s requirements for admission. Miss Frosch received 5 callbacks: Angelo State University, a member of Texas Tech System, East Texas Baptist University, University of the Ozarks, McCLennan Community College, and the very prestigious and finest acting conservatory in America, The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York/Los Angeles. Some of the Academy’s alumni include, Robert Redford, Elizabeth Montgomery, Danny Devito, Kim Cattrall, Adrien Brody, Anne Hathaway, Kirk Douglas, Grace Kelly, Lauren Bacall, and many more Oscar, Emmy and Tony awards actors and actresses. Miss Frosch was complimented as being a “leading lady” by the Academy’s representative during the interview. I am so proud of Miss Frosch and the way all of our students represent Eustace High School with poise, class, talent and knowledge. The students even impressed Luis Munoz,  Ex-Officio on the Board of Governors for T.E.T.A. and Theater Arts Director for U.I.L. One Act Play Contests with their talent and expertise during a competition with directors & students from other districts. The competition covered the rules for U.I.L. O.A.P. He asked what school we were with and suggested to me they be signed up to be on honor crew for the state meet competition. I remarked, “we intend to be performing at state!”  Munoz replied,  “see you at the docks!”  What a great experience the T.E.T.A. convention and workshop is for our students. We are grateful to be a part of such a wonderful learning experience and appreciate the E.I.S.D.and Board for affording the opportunity to us year after year. Way to represent E.H.S. Theater Arts! Congratulations Whitney! We are Bulldog proud!
