Chase County Schools won the SPVA One-Act Play Production Contest in its own auditorium Monday, taking first with “Something’s Rotten in the State of Denmark.”
Directed by Coach Jill Bauerle, the play is a spoof on Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.”
Individual actors recognized were Paul Gaschler and Bryan Bischoff, who portrayed Horatio and King Claudius, respectively. They both received an Honorable Mention in acting.
All-Conference Cast honors went to Chevy Smith, who portrayed Hamlet, while Andrei Rodriguez was named Best Actor as Laertes.
Bauerle said the win was “completely a team effort. It was very pleasant for them to win.” She also credited good senior class leadership and Assistant Director Halee Meyer’s good ideas.
Perkins County Schools took second place for “One of Our Clowns is Missing,” and Hershey High School took third for “Mother Goosed,” directed by CCHS graduate Brett Berry.
Also competing were Maxwell, North Platte St. Pat’s and Sutherland High Schools.
CCS will be competing at district competition in Ogallala Dec. 2.
