Twenty-eight students from the Saugus High School's Drama Department participated at the High School Theatre Festival at Fullerton College March 13 and 14.

Three Saugus students made the finals in three categories: Classical (pre-1920) dramatic monologue, Classical (pre-1920) humorous monologue, and Contemporary dramatic monologue.

Daniel Broadway made the finals with a classical humorous monologue from "The Importance of Being Earnest," and Amanda Dopico made the finals with a contemporary dramatic monologue from "Lost in Yonkers."

Daniel Stewart brought home a second-place trophy for his classical dramatic monologue from "Spring Awakening," with six out of eight judges ranking him first during the March 13 and March 14 competition.

Saugus students participated in a variety of scenes, styles and categories, ranging from humorous to dramatic, and classical to contemporary.

The festival brought more than 1,800 students representing almost 80 schools, some as far as Texas. Saugus Drama teacher Leslie Carson will now have the students focus on the school's upcoming production of "Moliere Impromptu."
