Nine noted at Loup City Parade of Plays
Outstanding performance awards were given to nine Swedes during the Loup City Parade of Plays last Friday.
Gothenburg students presented their one-act, “The Play Called Noah’s Flood,” and finished fifth out of eight teams.
Director Lori Long said she views the contest as an opportunity to perform in front of an audience to get new perspectives and ideas.
“Given that we knew we were going to be over time and that we took a minimal set and no costumes, I can’t complain about our overall placing.,” Long said.
This early in the season, she said she hopes rookies get experience and that kinks are worked out rather than placing at the top.
Earning outstanding performance awards were Carlin Daharsh, Rhett Lindholm, Dominic Long, Trenton Long, Brett Mann, Abbie Mazour, Betsy Potter, Jett Seimer, and Kayla Trevino.
With the exception of Dominic Long, the rest of the actors are seasoned veterans.
“It’s exciting for some of our rookies to receive accolades as well,” Long said.
Schools the Swedes competed against were Gibbon, Kearney Catholic, York, Fullerton, Adams Central, Cross County and Centura.
The next competition is the Gothenburg Play Production Invitational with the Swedes to perform at 8 a.m. Tuesday in the performing arts center. The public is invited.
