Mandan High theatre takes second at state one-act competition
Students from the Mandan High School Theater Program competed against 12 Class A schools in the State Class A Play Competition held in Devils Lake on April 8 and 9. This year was the first year the event was held in a contest format instead of a festival format. Mandan students earned second place behind West Fargo, performing the play “Nora’s Lost” by Alan Haehnel.
“Nora’s Lost” is about a woman with Alzheimer’s who gets lost outside her nursing home; it portrays many memories of her life as they travel in and out of her foggy mind near the time of her death. The play was directed by Lisa Stortz Quintus and technical director Tim Quintus. The cast involved 32 students, with 28 actors and four technicians. Superior performer awards went to MHS students Matty Singer, Genna Boehm and Erin Rector.
