More than 300 Dallas ISD middle school theatre students participated in the 2017 Irma P. Hall Festival on Nov. 4, hosted by the Dallas ISD Theatre Department.
During the festival, the students participated in four theatrical events: Costume Design, Monologue Performance, Improv Performance and Physical Acting Performance. The festival allowed students to showcase their artistry and express themselves through creation and performance.
The annual Irma P. Hall Festival is named after the legendary Dallas actress and former Dallas ISD educator. Irma Pamela Hall is best known for her work in “A Family Thing,” “Soul Food” and “The Lady Killers.” She continues to grace the big screen and the stage across the United States.
Hall took a break from her rehearsal schedule to make a special appearance at this year’s Irma P. Hall Festival. She inspired and encouraged the middle school theatre students to be the future theatrical students of our world. She praised their theatrical work and left the students feeling empowered.
