Chris Johnson, 17, a senior at Logan High School, has been accepted to work alongside the All Ohio Show at the Ohio State Thespian Conference as stage manager for their production of Good ‘N’ Plenty in Columbus.
“I was ecstatic and honored to be selected as the stage manager for this year’s state production,” Johnson said. “We are working three full weekends in Columbus to prepare for the show.”
Johnson has been involved in high school plays since his freshman year and joined the Thespian Troupe 5460 at Logan High School as a sophomore. The local group was chartered in November of 1995, and is active at both the local and state level.
Johnson also is a member of the honor society and an active member of Boy Scouts of America.
Theresa Johnson said of her son, “I am thrilled my son Chris was selected to be part of the show. It is the best of the best in Ohio. This is a huge deal being selected and I want my son to be involved in groups for the experience. It is good for him.”
Each year, students from across Ohio audition to be part of the all-state show, which is designed and performed by the students. This year’s show will be presented twice on Friday, March 28.
The State Thespian Conference is an educational event exclusively for high school students, their teachers, and adult chaperones.
The Ohio Education Theater Association State Thespian Conference will be held at Dublin Scioto School near Columbus from March 28 to 30. More than 1,500 theater students, teachers, and professionals will gather for a weekend of theater events.
