Its Not About You – advisory presentation

Competing against 16 of the top schools in the state, Hayden was ranked Superior by a panel of judges.  Our talk back judge said the show was “Perfect,” which is something that I have never heard from a judge before!

The drama club performed the student-written play “Its Not About You” during advisory on Feb. 5. They were spending extra rehearsal time on the play as they headed to the Rtate Competition.

Carl Hayden’s Theatre Department received an overall ranking of “Superior” for their One Act Play at the regional theater competition at Independence High School on February 7. This ranking qualified the cast of 12 to continue on to the State competition which will be held at Mountain Pointe High School on March 7.  This is the third time in four years that HaydenDrama, directed by Trish Galindo,  has received a Superior at Regionals and advanced to State. The students performed a play written by Carl Hayden’s Writer’s Guild which shows a young Hispanic girl’s struggle going to college. The name of the play is “It’s Not About You.”  The writing team consisted of many students but the main writers were Anna Flores and Maribel Hernandez who now attend ASU.

Please congratulate the following students when you see them today!
