County one-act plays stop at area round

Montague County saw three of its high school one-act plays compete at area Saturday, and while none of the plays advanced to regionals, two were named alternate and each play received cast and technical awards.
Forestburg and Gold-Burg both competed at area Saturday in Dennison. Plays advancing were Yantis, Slidell and Miller Grove, while Forestburg’s “A Canterbury Tale from the Wife of Bath” received alternate play to regionals on April 16 at Keller High School.
Forestburg’s Katelyn and Wyatt Park were named to the all star cast, Joscelyn Riddles and Crissa Berry received honorable mention and Katie Huseman won a technical award. Director Julie Sandusky said she was very proud of their season.
Gold-Burg’s “The Insanity of Mary Girard” competed, but did not advance. Director Linda Fitzner said “We had a great journey and a beautiful experience” this season. Megan Metz was named to the all star cast and Zach Whitmus received honorable mention all star cast. Taylor Lyons received a technical lighting award.
Nocona High School’s “Anatomies” competed at Clyde High School Saturday and tied for third place. Director Karla Murphey explained three school advance so there was a tie-breaker and Nocona was on the “short-end of the draw” being named alternate.
“So it ends, but what a ride it was. We enjoyed every minute,” said Murphey.
Hannah Dyer was named all star cast, with Olivia Storey and Colby Wilson, honorable mention. Kailey Armstrong was named best lighting technician for the day.
