The Redmond Proficiency Academy is celebrating 35 medals for Thespian Troupe #7715 at the Oregon Thespians Southern Regional Acting Competition

“Each year, I am taken aback by our department’s performance at Regionals,” said RPA Theatre Director Kate Torcom in a statement. “While their track record is impressive, it’s essential to recognize that their success is never guaranteed. It’s a new group of students each year, highlighting that this recognition is consistently earned, not inherited. It brings me immense joy to witness – showcasing the unwavering commitment of our RPA students to excellence and growth in educational theater.”

RPA said it was the most-decorated troupe in the Oregon Southern Region for the ninth year in a row.
