DCHS One-Act Places Second in Region
By MaKylla Underwood
Dodge County High School’s One-Act cast and crew surfaced with a third place ranking at their region competition for their rendition of “13 Ways to Screw Up Your College Interview.”
“Our students know comedy. This play allowed room for our students to demonstrate their talents, which is ultimately the goal of our sport,” said Donna Purvis, one of this years directors.
“Their strengths lie in bringing characters to life.
“ The play is about 13 vignettes with distinct personalities who interview for a college position. Basically, they portray 13 ways to not go into a college interview,” says Brande Vaughn, another director.
One-Act’s first performance was at DCHS on October 20th, followed by a performance at the Magnolia Theater on October 24th. They competed in Bleckley County on October 27th for the region competition, and their final performance was on November 10th, entertaining children and teens in the 21st Century Program from both local elementary schools, Dodge County Middle School, and DCHS at the Magnolia Theater.
“ It was constantly engaging, funny, and each character had its own unique part. I enjoyed being a part of this play, and I can’t wait to see what next year brings!” says first-year cast member Leslie Watson.
“One- Act was an awesome experience that I am glad I got to be apart of. I’m looking forward to next year!” says cast member, Elaina Cravey.
Because of their outstanding performances, many members received special recognition. Olivia Cranford, Lexi Hickman, former student CJ Kemp, and Leah Watkins made the All Star Cast.
“We had an All Star play this year, which gave me the opportunity to make on the All Star Cast, as well as the wonderful people in One-Act and our fabulous teachers: Ms. Purvis, Mrs. Vaughn, and Mr. Bush,” stated Cranford.
“ I think our students did really well, and did the best they could. Now, we’re getting focused and ready for next year.” Vaughn said.
