Two Lincoln-Way East students performed in the 2020 Illinois High School Theatre Festival’s production of Elton John and Tim Rice's "Aida" Jan. 9 to Jan. 11.

Senior Aden Richard and sophomore Joseph Kotze were among the all-state cast, crew, and pit orchestra, comprised of the top student performers, musicians, and technicians from Illinois.

More than 150 talented students auditioned for "Aida," 98 were selected for the final production company.

Kotze will appear on stage in the Ensemble, while Richard will be playing the cello in the orchestra.

Rehearsals for "Aida" took place over several long weekends during the fall of 2019, with final rehearsals occurring the last week before the performances.
