Lafayette (SCAPA) took first place in the Kentucky Theatre Association’s 2019 high school festival and play competition, which featured a dozen top entries from across the Commonwealth. Led by theater teacher Amie Kisling, the students presented a 45-minute version of “Failure: A Love Story” by playwright Philip Dawkins. Daniel Baesler received a nod for Outstanding Performance in a Supporting Role, and the judges picked Kieshaun Butts for the All-Star Cast.

The Lafayette group will now represent Kentucky at the Southeastern Theatre Conference this winter in Louisville.
