Swedes receive acting awards during SWC
A handful of Swede performers were noted for their performances after Gothenburg High School hosted the Southwest Conference Play Production Festival on Nov. 21.
Cast members who received outstanding acting awards included Josh Clark, Brett Mann, Carson Messersmith, Jeramie VanAcker, Ryan Ostendorf, Morgan Kowalewski, Betsy Potter and Jonathan Rehmert.
Director Lori Long said there were no placings, scoring or medalists but there will be next year.
Schools at the festival included Gothenburg, Cozad, Broken Bow, Ogallala, Minden, Ainsworth and Valentine.
This Saturday, the Swedes take their play, “The Adventures of Perseus” to District B-6 competition in Ogallala.
They will compete against Chadron, Gordon-Rushville, McCook, Mitchell, Ogallala, Sidney and Valentine.
If they win districts, the Swedes will perform at state competition at the University of Nebraska at Kearney on Dec. 9.
