Laurel wins State One-Act title again

KEARNEY — The cast and crew of Laurel-Concord’s One-Act team looked for a break in the weather before traveling to Kearney to compete in State Play competition on December 7. Competing against the winners of five other districts Laurel-Concord found themselves up against some very good competition and plays ranging from stories of the Holocaust to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

This year they had to wipe the moisture off the set after being bringing it in from the outside, but with the cooperation of 44 students and school staff members, the set was assembled in eight minutes and the play went off without a hitch.
The crowd was responsive and the judges’ comments were reflective of those responses as all three judges scored Laurel-Concord with a first place rating.
One of the judges commented on how the entire cast should be recognized as outstanding performers but they had to limit their selection. This year outstanding performer recognition went to Tate Cunningham, Brittney Koch, Austin Dvorak, Ann Brandow, Tony Brandow, Jon Mullen, Zach Spahr, Tyrel Whalen and Adam Schroeder.
To top off the entire day, The Best Male Performer award was given to Austin Dvorak for his performance of King Claudius.
