Taking a test is never easy. Taking one under the circumstances that “Mindy,” a character in Chase County Schools’ One-Act Play, does, is frightening.
The play took first place Monday in SPVA competition in North Platte. It will be performed for the public Nov., 27 at 7:30 p.m. in the school auditorium.
After CCS’s first place finish, Perkins County took second and North Platte St. Pat’s took third place.
Anna Bauerle and Tapainga Kahle were named to the all-conference cast, while Emma Bauerle was named outstanding actress for the day.
Top student Mindy, played by Emma Bauerle, wants to do well on a major exam, but her classmates erupt into chaos around her.
Mummering, pinching, burping, talks about visioning her as a cucumber, all disturb her concentration.
Teacher Mrs. Mock, played by Tapainga Kahle, doesn’t believe her, explaining the class is absolutely quiet and orderly.
Who’s right? We find out in the last few minutes of the 30-minute play.
Cast members playing students include Valeria Cervantes, Tyler Jennings, MaKenna Ketter, Claire Kuenne, Darin Knobbe, Jake Lueth, Ryan Moline, Paige Spady, Makenna Wallin, Sheldon Bartholomew, Charlie Ann Carter, Indy Smith, Anna Bauerle, Korey Krutsinger, Bridget Langin, Brittany Peters and Chuck Holman.
District competition will be Dec. 1 in Alliance.
