Twelve LHS drama students competed at districts Nov. 20 in Coeur d’Alene, and three of their performances qualified for state-level competition.
The original play, “The Devil All the Time, but Not in 2020,” qualified for state. Its author, Cale Wilponen, presented the play with Lane Riggs, Zach Steadman and Rune Marcy.
Also advancing to state is Rachel Hughes, with her solo musical piece, “The Song that No One Likes.” Olivia Reynolds qualified for state with a solo audition featuring monologues from The Importance of Being Earnest and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf?
Other students competing included Nam Bui for costume design; Sarah Kammer and Kate Pernsteiner for serious ensemble; Allison Remacle, Piper Rickman and Cale Wilponen for solo musical; and Rickman and Anikka Wilponen for serious original play.
State competition will be Dec. 3-4 in Boise.
