ACT For Youth wrapped up its season with the final performance of “Wind in the Willows” before an enthusiastic audience who gave the young actors a standing ovation.

At the strike party following the show, former actress Layla Overby who passed away in March at age 17 was remembered and the parents and friends who provided transportation, food and love to the cast and crew from audition night to the final performance were honored with the playing of “You Are the Wind Beneath My Wings” by Kenny Rogers.

The Ednas awards ceremony is scheduled for June 1 at the Boykin Center.
