A team of Biloxi High School students has won the 3rd annual Lynn Meadows Rubber Chicken Improv Festival for the third year in a row.
The year’s team, known as Kelly's Kids 3.0, consisted of (from row, from left): alternate Yolanda Cruz, Cobren Greer, Kristen Bankston, Beth Bonin; and (back row, from left) Corey Gaspard, alternate Shalise Sims, Alexandra Ware and Jessica Byrd.
The festival was held Oct. 19 and involved six schools. The competition is not unlike TV’s “Whose Line Is It Anyway?" Students compete in four rounds of play, and are judged by a panel of judges and audience response. The prize: the coveted Rubber Chicken trophy.
“Our kids look forward to the competition each year, although it can be very nerve-wracking,” said Biloxi High drama teacher Kelly Norris. “I am so very proud of our team for their win, but mostly for their drive to be the best they can be.”
