Truckee High Drama Club brings home gold
March 12, 2014
TRUCKEE, Calif. — Members of the Truckee High School Drama Club recently performed in the 58th Annual Lenaea Theater Festival, held at the Harris Center for the Arts/Three Stages complex at Folsom Lake College.
Their one act play, “The Real Problem,” performed by Justine Blide, Mikayla Mattocks, Cleo Mayer, Phoebe Rogers and Savannah Wilkinson won a Gold medal.
Blide also won a Bronze medal for her self-penned monologue, “Branchin’ Out.” Both pieces were performed for Truckee audiences in the club’s January production, “Thee and Thou and Now,” directed by Peggy Boelk.
Participants from 58 Northern California high schools competed in the three-day festival in monologues, duo scenes, one act plays, and musical theater solos. The festival provides an opportunity to interactively “workshop” the students’ pieces, with feedback immediately following their performance from working theater professionals from throughout California and the U.S., allowing a chance for the actors to expand and grow their craft.
Members of the Drama Club are now in rehearsals for their spring production, “Little Shop of Horrors,” which will take place the first three weekends of May in the Truckee High School Auditorium.
Tickets will go on sale in April.
