THS Drama Department to host One-Act Play Festival next weekend
For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – The Tomahawk High School (THS) Drama Department will host the District 2 One-Act Play Festival next weekend.
The festival will be held in the auditorium on Saturday, Oct. 14. THS will be the first school to take the stage at 8 a.m., performing “She Wrote, Died, Then Wrote Some More” by Steven Stack.
THS will be followed by Northland Pines at 9:20 a.m., Oconto Falls at 10:20 a.m., and Marinette at 11:20 a.m.
All shows are open to the public, and there is no charge for admission.
One-Act Play Director Michele Balda said the goal for each school is to receive advances from two of their three judges in order to move on to Sectionals in Oconto Falls in early November, with the ultimate goal being to qualify for State, which will be held at UW-Green Bay in mid-November.
“She Wrote, Died, Then Wrote Some More” centers around Alina Devereaux, who has finally completed her 2,700-plus page nonfiction fictional memoir and is anxious to share it with the world. Until she ends up dead. Or not dead. The comedic, melodramatic, one-act mystery features betrayals, broken hearts, a rather odd yet beautiful love story and a few twists, along with eccentric and unique characters who may or may not at some point end up dying themselves.
The cast for the production is as follows: Murphy Koth, Alina Devereau; Sadie Ruder, Marian the Maid; Isabella Marino, Minnie Matthews; Julia McGovern, Vivian Devereaux; Galen Schmidt, Barnabas Buckley; AJ Schertz, Anna Marie Silverstreet; Aubrey Graeber, Deanna Farnsworth; Xan Sutton, Nicholas Springfield; Arawen Alberg, Elizabeth Montgomery; Trey Morrison, Stefan Stade; and Cedar Hoffman, Stage Manager/Student Director.
Crew: Kiannah Mullen and Cheyanne Schade, lights; Johnathan Feltes, sound; Shyann Boos, Caroline Klesmith, Apollo Davis, Greta Kurth, Madeline Long and Mariah Sparbel.
Balda will be joined by Assistant Directors Nancy Herbison and Makayla Zipp.
