Gold Honor Troupe for 15 years running
For 15 years in a row, the Payson High School Drama Department has won the Gold Honor Troupe plaque from the Arizona State Thespian Society (ASTS). “We’re judged on the quality of our work,” said Kathy Siler, director of the Drama Department. ASTS started in the mid-1970s to provide quality theatre and educational experiences through networking opportunities and workshops. The ASTS award recognizes the PHS Drama Department as one of the most active thespian troupes in the state. To qualify, the Drama Department submits a dossier on the previous year’s work, said Siler.
