One Act State Runner-up
This year’s Lourdes competition one act play was A Seussified Christmas Carol, directed by Miss Gould and Mrs. Whitten. It is the classic Christmas Carol story with more Dr. Seuss appeal, rhyming and a lot of humor.
It is the classic story of “The Scrooge” who hoards his money, under-pays his clerk Bob Crachit, and intimidates the entire town. Scrooge is visited by three ghosts: Bob Marley (John Austin), the Ghost of Christmas Past (Anny Perdomo), the Ghost of Christmas Present (Madeline DuBois) and the
Ghost of Christmas Future (Noah Vasa). Realizing that if he does not change his ways he will die alone, the Scrooge changes his ways more and more with each visit and finally finds his Christmas spirit. “The Scrooge” was played by Reed Lechner, Joe Allen was Bob Crachit, and the two narrators were Jameson DeFreece and Michael Katalenich.
The dessert theater was Sunday Nov 13 when the one-act performed for parents and friends. On Nov 17 they placed first at conference competition at Pawnee city. The one act then went on to place first in districts at Johnson Brock. This earned a spot in Kearney for the state one-act competition on December 9th. They placed runner-up for the class C-2 championship. The cast and crew are very excited about their success and are hoping to win it all next year.
