DAHS One-Act brings home awards

img_0994The DeForest Area High School One-Act team took home several awards at the Wisconsin High School Theatre Festival (WHSTF) on Saturday, November 19 in Stevens Point, Wisconsin.

Pictured are Willow Williams, Gillian Staeven, Jenna Zimmerman, and Brett Price (representing the crew and advisor/coach Jan Williams). The group won five awards for their one-act play, Vanities – Outstanding Director, Critics Choice, and three for Outstanding Acting.

According to the WHSTF website, “One-act performances are a great educational opportunity for students to receive constructive criticism from theatre professionals to enhance their theatrical abilities.” During the festival students also watched other one-act plays and attended workshops.

This year, the festival’s 27th, UW-Madison partnered with UW-Stevens Point. The WHSTF provides students and teachers an opportunity to learn from trained theatre professionals and educators, to take the stage, and to watch their peers perform. All Wisconsin high schools are invited to participate.
