With heavy hearts we must inform you that our State Director, Mr. Daron Hawkins, passed away Wednesday, Sept 25th from pneumonia. He was a wonderful leader with stunning vision and will be greatly missed. He loved Florida Thespians, and was proud of the work you all do. His final wishes were that the show must go on. This years festival will be a living tribute to his dedication to educational theatre.
-Lindsay Painter, Assistant State Director
