HCA High School Thespians Troup Competes at Florida District Thespian Competition
On Friday, December 2, the HCA High School Thespians students performed a One Act entitled “Cheating Death” at Deerfield Beach High School, and on Saturday, December 3, students performed their individual events at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
A one act play tells an entire dramatic story in one act. When performing a one act, each troupe is allotted 40 minutes to move their entire set from an offstage box that must fit into a 6 x 6 x 9 foot rectangle, to the stage, perform their one act, and then return the entire set to the offstage box.
HCA High School Thespians received an Excellent for their one act. Zak Henderson received the All-Star Cast award, and Bryce Barton won Best Supporting Actor Award.
Individual Events allow students to use their individual unique talents to compete. Competition areas range from monologues where a student performs alone to ensemble acting where a group of thespian students perform together to musical solos and duets. Following are the scores from Saturday’s performances:
Monologue: Sarah Bragdon, Abigail Canning, Shannon Motherwell
