Chase Ellis is so excited to be one of the Kansas State Thespian Officers this year. A proud member of Troupe 3310 at Olathe North High School. Outside of theatre, they enjoy playing many instruments including the french horn, trumpet, and piano. I also like to partake in some more unique hobbies such as juggling and balloon twisting. I can’t wait to work alongside all of the amazing Kansas Thespians this year as an STO!
Leo Larson is a Junior at Wichita High School Northwest (Troupe #2661). Leo began acting at an early age and was soon introduced to the side of theatre. He is an inspiring director and writer. Leo’s goal as an STO is to represent not just his love for theatre and beliefs about it’s importance but to stand as a vessel for all thespians across Kansas and hear what you want then fight for it on behalf of all of you. He is excited to be that representative for the thespian student body and promises to lead and represent everyone to the best of his abilities. Sarah McDonald is a junior at Emporia High School (Troupe 6688). She’s been involved in the performing arts since she was 3 years old and is so excited to continue her leadership at this level. In her free time, Sarah serves on the board of her schools GSA, is a Class Representative for Student Council, enjoys singing in Chorale, and is an active member of National Honors Society, as well as KAY Club and Fem Club. She also works with her diocese on the Youth Commission and is a member of the Servant Leader Program. She’s very excited to demonstrate and expand her leadership skills for the State of Kansas!
