On Thursday, Oct. 27, the cast and crew of the Upper School one-act play, The Trouble with Tartuffe, took the show on the road for the One-Act Region Competition at Henry County Schools Performing Arts Center. The competition required students to perform their dramatic piece, starting and ending with an empty stage, in under an hour. The competition was stiff, but ultimately, no match for the Knights.
The team nabbed the all-around first-place title, and was also awarded Best Set and Best Costumes. Additionally, senior Oliver Loree was named Outstanding Actor; seniors Charlotte Vadnais and Alex Goodrich received All-Star Cast honors; and sophomore Nicholas Demba earned Supporting Actor recognition. The show goes on to the GHSA One-Act State Competition on Saturday, Nov. 19.
In preparation for state, The Trouble with Tartuffe will return to the Zalik Theater stage for a dress rehearsal, and all are welcome to attend this final campus showing on Thursday, Nov. 17, at 4 p.m.
For those who are interested in making the trip to state to cheer on the Knights, the competition will be held Saturday, Nov. 19, at Northside High School in Warner Robins, Ga. Pace, competing in Region 5, is scheduled to appear at 11:30 a.m. An awards presentation will take place at 8:30 p.m.
Whether or not you can make it, join us in giving a grand bravo and one last round of broken legs to the cast and crew!
