MADISON – Madison’s high schools nabbed both slots for one-act plays to represent Alabama at Southeastern Theatre Conference (SETC) in Greensboro, N.C. on March 2-6, 2016.

James Clemens’ “Silenced on Barbour Street” and Bob Jones’ “The Axeman’s Requiem” earned top honors at 2015 Walter Trumbauer State Secondary Theatre Festival at Troy University.

Dwayne Craft, drama instructor with Mary Davis at Bob Jones, has been involved with Trumbauer for 19 years. “I’ve never seen a single city/district do as well, literally sweeping the competition away.”
