The Homewood-Flossmoor High School dramatic group interpretation team took third place honors for their 30-minute performance of "Jekyll and Hyde" at the Illinois High School Association’s Drama and Group Interpretation State Finals at the University of Illinois-Springfield in March.
In addition to the team honor, four H-F students were named to the All-State Cast for their performances: Rashun Carter as Jekyll, Michael Kennedy as Hyde, Jessica Ashby as Ms. Lanyon and Andronicus Marati as Musician.
At the March competition they were on stage with fellow cast members Charles Austin III, Joey Cipriano, Sydney DuBose, Sarah Esparza, Morgan Harvey, Will Knox, Aundria LaNier, Maddie Moxley, Gianmarco Petrelli, Briana Powell, Ethan Runburg, Jabari Tate, Sarah Skorupa and Taylor Wicks.

H-F alumni gave their time to the H-F team. Ron Bowden was the technical director/traveling supervisor; Mike Johnson, who works professionally at Crosstown Scenic LLC, designed the set; and Aurora Klok was scenic painter.
The Jekyll and Hyde presentation was directed by H-F teacher Janine Stroemer and H-F alumnus Allen Reynolds, with assistance from H-F teachers Jill Bonavia, Jeanne Miller, Catherine Cook, part-time teacher Lizz Wallace and H-F Activities Director Gail Smith.
