While most students slept in for a two hour delay on Jan. 24, thespians embraced the cold to head downstate for their annual State conference.

“I’ve gone three times. The shows were good and better than what they were last year. The Helen Keller show was amazing with their acting. There was a lot of talented people performing this year than last,” Lauren Bourget (12) said.

Seniors reminisce their last State theater conference as opposed to previous years.

“I thought it was more fun than the previous year I went. It was my last year, I was with all of my senior best friends and we all did well in our individual events. I received two superior ribbons for my events in Solo Musical Experienced and Duet Acting Experience with Zachary Buntin (12). I thought I could’ve done better, but the scoresheets said otherwise,” Mia Gjeldum said.

“Drum Taps,” a chapter select show for the region, heard news on performing in Nebraska for the International Conference in June. A chapter select show is one which wins at state and performs at the International Conference.

“I thought Drum Taps did really well, but it wasn’t the best run we had. I was excited and confused when I heard were going to Internationals. It’s bittersweet because we need to rehearse the show longer and it is a lot of money to go to Internationals, but it’ll be nice to attend,” Adam Gustas (9) said.
