BREVARD COUNTY • ROCKLEDGE, FLORIDA – McNair Magnet Middle performing arts student, eighth grader, Hannah Goodman recently took the critic’s choice best of show in her category at the Florida Junior Thespians State Festival on February 10 – 11.
Goodman received a scholarship to attend a summer Broadway intensive workshop as a result.
Many other students performed in the festival as well.
To prepare for the competition, the students chose their own performances, prepared on their own time, and worked diligently under the direction of performing arts teacher, Lisa Hill.

“Special congratulations to Hannah Goodman. She was invited to perform for the closing ceremony where Broadway star Jennifer Jones selected her as the recipient of the scholarship.”
