The Colman-Egan High School one-act play “Hollow” advanced to state level competition at the Region 1B competition in Brandon last Tuesday. They will compete on Saturday, February 2 at 3:30 p.m., which is the last day of the three-day event. “I am tremendously proud of my cast and crew for their time commitment and being such a joy to work with. This is the first time we've gone to state in four years, so we are indeed excited,” said Colman-Egan One-Act play director Valerie Parsley.

Colman-Egan also had two actors win Outstanding Performer Awards in Callie Verver and Laramie Olivier.

Colman-Egan’s category this year was serious and their play takes place in New York City during 9/11. Teri Lee, played by Verver, discovers her abusive father, was a hero in the Towers when they collapsed. Chris, played by Olivier, plays a friend who helps her through the tough times.

The FHS One Act play cast and crew performed at the Region 4A competition held at the Dakota Prairie Playhouse in Madison on January 23. Their production of Dogsbreath Devereaux: The Dastardly Doctor (..or Nurses! Foiled Again!) advanced to the State One Act Play Festival

Flandreau will perform on Friday afternoon. Feb. 1st at 2:45pm.

The festival is open to the public.

“This is a demanding script where timing is critical to the comedy. The entire cast and crew have worked hard to master the tempo and were recognized by the region judges for their ability to maintain high energy throughout the performance. The judges also applauded our students for their commitment to their characters and their ability to bring the comedy to life. I am very proud of these students, their work ethic and their camaraderie with one another,” said Flandreau’s One-Act play director Kristi Fischer.

In addition, four actors were singled out for Region 4A Outstanding Performer awards: Justin Lacey, Lexy Antione, Lea Clark and Caitlyn Drietz.

Providing technical assistance for the production are Erica Behrens, Anthony Julson, Baylee Relf and Morgan Ten Eyck.
