Luanda, now a junior, was one of the seven students chosen to compete in the coveted “Musical Solo” category at the District Theatre Competition to be held on December 4, 2021 at West Boca High School. Luanda will be singing the animated and humorous song “In Short” from the musical “Edges“, with lyrics and music written by American songwriting duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. The song’s lyrics express all the different ways a female character in the musical would like to see her ex-lover meet his demise.
This will be the first time Luanda has participated live at districts given last year’s competition was held virtually due to Covid. This is the second year in a row she has been chosen to perform a musical solo. Last year she was the only sophomore to compete in the solo musical category and she received superior ratings at both district and state competitions.
State Competition Coming in March 2022
Luanda also hopes to take this same performance to State Competition which takes place during Spring Break in Orlando Florida in 2022. This will be her first competition in person at the States as well, with Luanda bringing home her first superior rating from states as a sophomore during the last virtual State competition. She is really looking forward to participating in her first “in-person” state championships.
