This past weekend 23 musical theater students attended the 17th Annual Middle Stage Drama Fest in Pleasant Hill. Students performed monologues, scenes and musical numbers, competing for gold, silver, and bronze medals. This year over 300 students from 20 middle schools competed in the festival. In the end, Gilmore walked away with nine gold, eleven silver and twenty-four bronze medals. Special recognition goes to Max Schug who placed 4th out of 160 other students competing in the Monologue division!
