ops2 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (3/13/13) – Owensboro High School drama teacher Carolyn Greer is accustomed to staying behind the scenes as she directs her students and the Rose Curtain Players. But, it was center stage for her on March 9 at the Southeastern Theatre Conference Convention (SETC) held at the Kentucky Center for the Arts in Louisville. She was named “Best Director” from among all the participants at the conference, which drew more than 500 high school students and drama teachers from 10 Southeastern states.

Last November at the Kentucky Theatre Association One-Act Play competition, the Rose Curtain Players earned the right to represent Kentucky and perform Among Friends & Clutter by Lindsay Price at the Southeastern conference by being named first runner-up. Competing against 16 other schools this past weekend, the Rose Curtain Players were the winners of the “High School One-Act Competition.”  The troupe received “superior” ratings from the three judges and junior Helen Merritt and senior Jonah Clark were selected as “All-Star Cast members.”

Cast members included: Helen Merritt, Hadley Rouse, Maddie Brasher-Evans, Kelsey Reese, Jonah Clark, Will Van Winkle, John Thomas Priar, Joseph Hunt

Crew members were: JoCarol Bunch, Keith Woosley, Brie Greer, Anna Caroline Brake, Navji Dixon, and Erin Rouse

While at the conference, students attended workshops, presentations and performances. “Four OHS students auditioned for over 100 colleges, receiving over 140 callbacks between them,” Greer explained. She presented a workshop with David Balthrop, head of theatre department at Murray State University, on creating partnerships between college and high school programs.


The Rose Curtain Players will be performing Among Friends & Clutter on Tuesday, March 26, at 7 p.m. at Owensboro High School as part of the Owensboro Public Schools’ fine arts festival. Owensboro Middle School will also perform The Snow Show that night.
