Mount Pleasant High School Will Perform “Frozen”!

The United States of  Frozen

A nationwide contest called The United States of  Frozen: Love is an Open Door competition was open to any high school in the U.S., including U.S. territories. Well, many submitted but only one was chosen. Mount Pleasant High School was ecstatic to learn that they had been selected to perform the coveted story. The applicants were asked to explain how they would use their production based on three categories.  To strengthen their school community, provide outreach to underserved groups, and support inclusive and diverse theatre programs. The winning schools receive rights for up to three performances of Frozen; free access to the work’s digital script, score, and orchestrations; a video license, and more.
