American High School Theatre Festival in Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland

The  Alonso HS Theatre Program has been invited to perform in the 2020 Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland as part of the American High School Theatre Festival.  The program was nominated for consideration and invited to apply.  After a very lengthy application process, we received the great news that Alonso was accepted for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.  There are only 48 schools in North America who have been accepted for this honor.  Alonso HS is the first Hillsborough County School to ever receive this invitation and honor.
