One Act Season Brings Both Change, Success

After a third place win at region competition, One-Act members reflect back on their musical performance as this year was one of exciting change for the cast and crew.

For the first time in more than six years, the performance was a musical, and Dodge County’s One-Act hosted the region competition.

Performing “How to Make a Musical,” the cast placed third out of six other high school teams on Nov. 2, at Southeastern Technical College in Vidalia, Ga.

The play was directed by Quint Bush, Trey Stephens and Brande Vaughn.

When Vaughn was asked what she likes most about participating with One-Act she replied, “I enjoy working with the kids and seeing how much they enjoy doing it.”

Cast member Jordie Davies said that the students enjoy the preparation and seeing the characters brought to life for their peers.

“I love being on the stage,” she said. “It’s always fun to see what kind of twist people give to their characters.  We all work together like family to put on the best show possible.”

Bush said he was pleased with the effort by the cast and crew as well as by the support shown from the school.

“I’ve appreciated support from faculty and students in One-Act and hope to see the support increase every year in the future,” stated Bush.

In preparation for next year, students are practicing improvisation.

“We have a lot of talented people,” Stephens said. “Provided right direction, we have the potential to excel in this field.”

Vaughn specially thanked Mr. Tom Cranford for helping with the production’s scenery and to English department members for providing food and support for the competition.
