The America High School Theatre Festival (AHSTF) nominates JSerra Catholic High School’s production of Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap for The Fringe Theater summer performances.

Out of thousands of applications, the AHSTF annually chooses only ten high schools in the country to compete in the prestigious Festival.

“I am thrilled to have our wonderful production of The Mousetrap and the theater program here at JSerra recognized for our work. I am incredibly proud of the student actors who commit so much of their time and sacrifice so much to be involved in a production. It is rewarding to see all of our hard work and dedication be honored,” said Deborah Marley, JSerra Theater Director.

The high school with the winning performance from the festival will move on to perform in Edinburgh, Scotland, at The Fringe Festival. The group that moves on to Scotland will have the opportunity to perform a play of their choice four times on the main stages. The group will also take professional masters classes while in Scotland.

The premier festival attracts professional actors and theater companies alike.

“JSerra is honored to be acknowledged by this wonderful organization. I am so happy that our students’ efforts and hard work, and that of our theater teacher Deb Marley, have been given recognition through this great opportunity in Theater Arts,” said Nancy Harrell, JSerra Artist-in-Residence Director.
