Over 150 area high school students spend day showcasing musical talents
FARGO — High school rivals came together to support one another on Monday, March 4, for the Sixth annual Fargo Area One-Act Festival, a multi-school performing arts event.
More than 150 students from four area high schools took part in the event at Fargo North High School to showcase their musical skills. Students performed one-act plays and musical ensembles for each other and played theater games.
Organizers said the festival brings students together and creates a feeling of community between students from different schools.
"Seeing one school perform, and hearing all the kids from the other schools just freaking out — so excited — bursting out in applause, laughing and really enjoying each other's work," said Rachel Gillen, director of Fargo North's one-act play.
The festival continues Tuesday, March 5. Students who are participating are from Fargo North, South, Davies, and Sheyenne High School.
