Play Production Wins District Runner-Up

On Saturday December 7th the Chadron High one act team traveled to Sidney to compete in the Class B one act play competition.  At districts the team won the runner up trophy for their production of the "Wizard of Oz."    

The team competed against seven other schools including, Mitchell, McCook, Valentine, Ogallala, Sidney, Gordon/Rushville, and Alliance.  Ogallala was the champion with their production of "Robin Hood" and will represent the district at state competition in Norfolk on Friday.  

The team received critiques from three judges who complimented them highly for the set, costumes, makeup, and blocking.  The three judges score each team based on acting, characterization, and overall production.  Chadron received a perfect score, and a first, second, and third place ranking by the three judges.Eight students were recognized for their acting by receiving outstanding acting awards.  They were:  Shay Chamberlain, Caston Stack, Kodi Milburn, Telli Morford, Alex Lutz, Jenny Van Vleet, Tavia Passero, and Logan Lembke.  

Jill Paopao, the director, noted, "This is one of the toughest districts in the state.  If you look at the history of who wins Class B at state it is almost always a team from this district, and when it isn't, it's generally the second place team."
