Theatre students victorious at East Tennessee competition


On Friday, October 27, CBHS Theatre under the direction of John Smiley traveled to Maryville, TN to compete in the Tennessee Theatre Association One Act Festival. More than 15 high schools participated in the event hosted at Maryville College. For this year's competition CBHS brought Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl and took home awards for Best Supporting Actor (senior Daniel Ward) and All-Star Cast (juniors Michael Simon, Andrew Mays, and Christopher Blake). Senior Luca Conti also competed for the Tennessee Theatre Association Scholarship Auditions and took home the honor of Best Actor. Congratulations to the CBHS Theatre program!


The CBHS Theatre Program exists as an ongoing educational venue in theatrical arts geared toward education and enlightening students, performers and spectators alike, toward the understanding that the ARTS are a vital and meaningful part of the human existence. The number one goal of theatre is education. To that end, the theatre staff work diligently to provide performance opportunities for as many students as possible who might wish to experience being a part of a theatrical stage work. This helps to ensure that many young men of CBHS, and female participants from other schools, have the exposure to theatrical arts education. There are opportunities galore for students of all talents - from actors and singers, to dancers, instrumentalists, designers, and those who love technical work. All young men who attend CBHS are eligible for auditions. Actresses from local high schools are part of our program, and we are always open to all who wish to audition and participate. Novice and veteran performers alike have a home with the CBHS theatre program.
