We are proud of every single student who competed in Regionals because they achieved our department goal of practicing and growing acting skills. To summarize, over 35% of the numbers we brought to Regionals placed in the top 20% and over 13% of our numbers placed in the top 10%. Everyone worked hard in a limited number of weeks, and every student showcased their accomplishments at our Night On Broadway performances. Congratulations to the 18 WVHS students who made the top 20%!

Additional Accomplishments

Drama Club Treasurer Mikaela Ochocki represented Wilsonville High School as Vice-chair of the Oregon Student Thespian Officers. At Regionals this year she participated in leading two state-wide initiatives: the Feminine Hygiene Drive for women’s shelters and the Minute To Give for California school districts affected by wildfires.

Mikaela lead Thespian Troupe #5452 to bring 10,000 out of 18,000 Feminine Hygiene Products to the State Thespian Drive, making WVHS the winner for the Northeast Region. She also helped organize our region to raise over $450 during the Minute To Give drive, the largest amount raised by any region in the state.

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.
