Georgia Jr. One-Act Festival
Sarah Belisle

After months of rehearsals, Mrs. McKerley and her team of 36 thespians traveled to Vidalia, GA last weekend for the Georgia Jr. One-Act Festival. The group performed a 45-minute version of William Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” - and the judges really liked it!

After a spectacular performance with three superior scores of 99, 98 and 96, the group placed second overall. And three individuals came home with award hardware. Seventh-grader Hanson Berg won Best Actress, while eighth-grader Amay Cholia and seventh-grader Natalia Parra were given the honor of All-Star Cast. 

Congratulations to all of the “As You Like It” cast members: Ryan Akin, Hanson Berg, Colin Blackmon, Charlotte Brettel, Amay Cholia, John Coke, Addison Davis, Mara Gardiner, John Parks Gunnels, Charlie Kaufman, Mackenzie Palmer, Alessandro Pariardini, Natalia Parra, Zari Preyor, Amani Price-Mulky, Luc Rusche, Katy Scott, Bryson Seebach, Eden Seib, Daisy Whittington, Lexi Allen, Reese Chester, Esha Cholia, Addison Cooper, Fletcher Elwell, Cara Gardiner, Stella House, Dwight Lewis, Walker Lewis, Sienna Oldland, Chayce Oliver, Clara Owen, Julie Urban.
