Taiza Cole, a junior, was one of 20 students who were cast. She will play a gospel singer, which is a leading role, stated Anita Lippman, theater teacher at the high school, in an email to Patch.
"Auditioning was life changing because it opened my eyes to show how hard I will have to work," stated Cole in an email. "But I am so happy to be cast and experience working with all these other talented students."
Cole is a thespian and, as someone who has been singing her entire life, is active in her church choir and in Brentowod's choir program.
More than 20 schools will be represented during the all-state production.
