Editor, The Herald:

There are 101 Group AA High Schools in Virginia and most are vying to be crowned as producing the best one act play in the state. On Monday, December 6, 2010 in Charlottesville the Prince Edward High School Drama Team had the honor of participating in the Group AA State Theatre Festival Finals. The Eagles' trip to the State Festival was a result of winning the Southside District and placing second behind Lafayette High School in regional competition. Lafayette also finished first in the state competition. Congratulations to Lafayette and to the Eagles who finished fifth. Furthermore, congratulations to Alicia Moseley for winning a best actress award for her performance.

We cannot begin to tell people how outstanding this entire competition has been. We have had the pleasure of viewing young actors and actresses full of passion, acting out plays that made us laugh, cry, think, and we feel privileged to be caught up in the experience. The many hours of hard work and dedication that the teachers and students put into their respective play really showed.
