Your 2019-2020 VHS Players Officers and Director
President: Alicia Perez
Alicia is in her senior year, and this is her third year as a member of the VHS Players. She made her VHS Players stage debut as Belle in The Demise of the Downhome Dealers. She previously scurried around in the dark for Thistle Blossoms, Postmortem, and High School Musical. Alicia agrees with her drama mama and papa that she needs to grow out her bangs, and start pinning them with bobby pins in the interim. She wants to give a shout out to Nelson and Benedict Cumberbatch, two of the most awesome folks that she wished she knew.
Vice President: Andie Nichols
Andie is a senior in the IB program here at Vanguard, and her third year of drama club. She started the second semester of sophomore year and loved it! She is currently a club member in drama, debate, robotics, Reverb, and National Honor Society. She competes in equestrian jumping, and volunteers at the local equestrian hospital; while also working as a tutor, model, photographer’s assistance, a barn assistance, and a manager at The Fittest Writing Company. She loves to express herself through writing, acting, drawing or anything that allows her to create. Well, that’s all she can think about to share, so that’s her!
Parliamentarian: Emmaline Carroll
Secretary: Rachel Whelan
Historian: Beatrice Pruitt
Beatrice is a junior and this is her third year as a member of the VHS Players. Beatrice’s hobbies include chasing unicorns, underwater basket weaving, and collecting belly button lint. When she’s not taking pictures of VHS Players events, and working on the scrapbook, she can be found running around the stage screaming “Break a leg! Break a leg! But don’t really break your leg! That would be bad!”. Her VHS Players credits include High School Musical, A Nightmare on 28th Street, Postmortem, Thistle Blossoms, and The Demise of the Downhome Dealers.
Publicity Manager: Brandon Champagne
Brandon Champagne is in his senior year of high school. If you heard anything about drama club last year he was in it or a part of it. From Play in a Day, Coffeehouse Cabaret, Postmortem, Demise of the Downhome Dealers and a tech for Thistle Blossoms. In his free time he does mix media art and sells it at the artwalk downtown, he’s also decent at the guitar and writing. He’s may look annoyed but that’s just his resting face, it’s okay to talk to him.
Director: Mrs. Sarah LeBeau
Mrs. LeBeau is currently the director of Troupe 1003, and the VHS Players at Vanguard High School. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Theatre Education from East Carolina University. Before her career at VHS in 2009, she could be seen on stage and screen. Her favorite role to date is Brooke/Vicki in the Ocala Civic Theatre production of Noises Off!. She met her loving & supporting husband in 2010, and tied the knot March, 2015. She can be found muttering “It’s in the syllabus” or “You’re always auditioning” in her classroom, where you can find her if you need help with ANYTHING…well, except math. She and her husband welcomed their son into the world this September, 2018.
