"They gave their best performance ever! The show was outstanding and the audience was genuinely hooked. As I watched these kids perform, I saw their competitors reacting to what they saw. They were hooked. You could hear a pin drop in the theatre. Reactions of tears, gasps, and asking their neighbors what was going on onstage were littered throughout the audience. The other students gave them standing applause at the end of the performance and individual compliments from teachers and students as well," said Lydia Robles, Seguin High School theatre director.
