The Center High School One-Act Play Company competed at the District Play Contest last Friday at Carthage High School with its play A Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare. They are pleased to announce that they advanced to bi-district competition to be held next week.
In addition, the company is proud of its individual winners from Friday night.
Outstanding Crew to the District Contest: Kristen Orsak
Honorable Mention All Star Cast: Kelsey Adair and Jack Callen Watlington
All Star Cast: Mark Perkins and Keaton Watlington
The bi-district contest will be in Palestine High School on Wednesday March 20. Center is scheduled to perform at 2:00, but those hoping to attend should arrive at least 30 minutes prior. Often the contest runs ahead of schedule, and once a play begins, admission is restricted.
Because the official contest rehearsal for Center is Tuesday March 19 at 4:00, the company will have to reschedule its home performance currently slated for the 19th. The Department will kick off its spring season at a later date.
The CHS Theatre Department is excited to announce its 2019 Spring Season: Four Original Takes. It features two original premieres, both written by Center students, one original take on a Shakespeare classic, and our annual Centerstage, an original musical spoof combined with improv comedy.
The season, originally scheduled to begin Tuesday March 19 at 6:30 p.m., will be rescheduled due to bi-district competition. When rescheduled, the season will include a presentation of A Comedy of Errors, one of Shakespeare's earliest comedies. Originally set in Medieval Italy, CHS has reset it in vaguely modern times, serving as both comic farce and light satire on our own America. We'll open with a quick round of improv comedy as a curtain opener; total running time will be 55 minutes.
Watch for details of the CHS One-Act Play presentations at Center High School when they are rescheduled.
