Mikaela Ochocki, Board Vice-Chair, State Thespian Officer 2018-2019

We are proud of all of our performers and techs, who participated in Night On Broadway, Regionals, and State! Here’s a few results from our three days in Salem, Oregon for the State Thespian Competition. Mikaela Ochocki (pictured, right) was selected as Vice-Chair to serve as an Oregon State Thespian Officer. Kameron Koslowski and Noah Kennedy were one of the top two Original Pantomime Scenes, so they showcased at the event. Our State Finalists, in the top four competitors out of sixteen at state, were: Peyton Guenther and Nate Rasmussen for their Duet Acting Comic – Experienced scene, Beyond Therapy by Christopher Durang & Katie Walter and Averyl Hartje for their Duet Acting Dramatic – Experienced scene Agnes Of God. Our one-act, Post It’s (Notes On A Marriage) by Paul Dooley was directed by Peyton Guenther and received a superior rating.

Big thanks to Jason Katz and John Fitzgerald for all of their late nights and extra hours at school helping students prepare for Night On Broadway, Regionals, and State. We appreciate all the district, parent and community support for theatre education!

The whole State 2018 crew.
