The Winner High School contest one act play took fourth place at the regional competition in Pierre on Jan. 24.
Mary Calhoon received a superior for her acting.
The WHS entry in the regional contest was “Pals.”
The cast includes: Cam Irick, Ronae Klein, Matt Hartley and Mary Calhoon.
The play is directed by Kara Connot and Kelly Assman with Dan Patmore as the technical director.
The technical crew included Elijah Blare, Ronae Klein, Lauren Norrid and Kiersten Durrin.
The stage crew was Jack Ducheneaux and Heather Rowe.
The play deals frankly with one of today’s most sensitive and compelling issues.
Steve tells his friend Jack that he no longer wants to go on living. Suicide would make him just another statistic. So the two banter about the alternatives—until in an awful moment of horseplay and confrontation, the playwright brings the audience to a stunning climax of shock and introspection.
The play was presented in Winner during a night of one act plays on Jan. 18-20 at the Winner Community Playhouse.
