GHS one-act performers recognized

Gothenburg High School’s one-act, “The Adventures of Perseus,” placed third at the invite the Swedes hosted Nov. 15 in the performing arts center.

Director Lori Long said the Swedes tied in rank with McCook but had one less rating point to break the tie. Ravenna won the contest.

Overall, sophomore Brett Mann received best-supporting actor honors.

Outstanding performer awards for the Swedes went to Mann, Josh Clark, Jeramie VanAcker, Ryan Ostendorf and Betsy Potter.

Eustis-Farnam also had two outstanding performers—Dustin Koch and Melanie Johnson—noted in their play “Cliques and Cafeterias.”

In addition to Gothenburg and Eustis-Farnam, other schools competing in the contest were Lexington, Hershey, Brady, Cody-Kilgore, Loup City, Adams Central, McCook and Ravenna.

The public will get another chance to see the Swedes perform in the PAC on Tuesday, Nov. 29, at 7:30 p.m.
