Public performance slated for Nov. 28 @ 7:00 p.m.
Wahoo High School hosted the 2016 One Act Capitol Conference Competition on Mon., Nov. 21.
The Wahoo One Act cast and crew put on an abstract presentation about children of divorce titled "Split" by playwright Bradley Hayward.
"Those with Mom, this way. Dad, that way. Upstairs and to the right. Second door on the left. Wait for clearance. Those moving, veer right. Those sharing, veer left. Stop for Grandma. Slow down. Turn for Grandpa. Speed up. Wait here. Wait there. This way. That way. Speed up. Straight ahead. Speed up. Straight ahead. Speed up. Straight ahead. Speed up. Speed up. Speed up. Lift off!"
"Children of divorce are united through humor in this honest and theatrical look at the day-to-day reality of growing up in a family that's been torn apart. As these teenagers navigate a winding road that includes new bedrooms, new siblings and new responsibilities, they begin to put the pieces of their broken homes back together."

This is a definite change from their usual farce/comedy. They have competed at York’s One Act festival and recently here at the Capitol Conference. This talented troupe placed 4th out of 8 schools. The tough part was losing to Platteview (who took 3rd) by one point!
The set is minimal, which puts the weight on acting abilities and special effects. This cast and crew has done very well. The excellence in performance awards so far have gone to Kristin Callan, Tylie Tingelhoff, Hannah Janda, Elizabeth Hill, Zoe Christenson, Madison Bittleston, Aaron Redding, Isaac Redding, Austin Abramo, and Kahleb Elliott.
Please come to the annual community performance on Monday night, Nov 28 at 7:00 p.m. There will be a musical variety show along with the performance of "Split!" The cost is $3 at the door.
