Coming off of their big win last year at the International Thespian Festival, the Gaels Theatre Guild was determined to make another victorious run this summer, but this time doing it a little differently. As opposed to last year’s ensemble win, BG thespians this year were encouraged to compete in their desired individual events, which included Solo Musical Theatre, Contrasting Monologues, various Tech events, and many more.

There were 29 students at the G who qualified at the state level to compete internationally at Indiana University this year against thousands of other thespians across the world. Of the 29, many scored superior scores of 18 or above in their individual performance events, “it was great to be a part of such a huge competition. It was an awesome feeling to be recognized for my work,” exclaimed thespian Max Wieseler, ‘24.

Of those who scored superior, Zoe Diao ‘23, Chandler Shulman ‘24, Luke Martin ‘25, and Marie Muñoz ‘25 were awarded perfect scores and each won the International Thespian Excellence Award for their individual performances. “This year was interesting because nearly everyone competed in solo events. We really got to show off the range of talent that BG has,” explained Maddie Brown, ‘24.

The Gaels Theatre Guild continues to represent Bishop Gorman by winning state-wide and prestigious national competitions. They are looking forward to this year’s performing arts season, with the musical comedy Pippin opening at the Jim3 House of Performing Arts this November and the ever-so-popular Les Misérables coming this February.
