reagan thespians have strong performance at convention

Reagan High School Thespian Troupe #6151 traveled to Houston for the annual Texas State Thespian Convention from Nov. 29 through Dec. 1. The students competed in individual acting and technical events, as well as auditioned for scholarships and colleges.
