GM Drama Department advances to state competition

Green Mountain Union High School Drama Department will be advancing to the Vermont State One Act Festival, to be held this coming weekend in Brandon.

On Saturday, March 22, GM competed in the Vermont Regional One Act Festival held at Springfield High School. Their performance of the drama “Booby Trap” by Ed Monk, secured them one of 10 spots at the state competition. The short drama tells the story of an American soldier trapped on a landmine in the throes of war. The story is played out in a series of scenes set in the past, present and future.

The cast includes: Tessa Bushey, Leah M. Cunningham, Thomas Foster, Anna Huckins, Heather Morse, Hanley Murray, Daina Ricketts,  Holly Silva, Maddie Thomas,  Mary Thompson and Sam Wood. They were directed by  Fritz Wendlandt, and their stage manager was fellow student Jasmin Ricketts.

This weekend, the group will travel to Otter Valley Union High School to perform and compete with nine other high schools from Vermont. If they win this weekend, they will advance to the New England Drama Festival, to be held this year in St. Johnsbury, VT, from April 15 through April 17.

During the regional competition, four students — Leah M. Cunningham, Hanley Murray, Maddie Thomas and Mary Thompson — were recognized with awards for excellence in acting.
