Play on: East Ridge, Park advance in one-act competition
East Ridge High School's one-act play troupe advanced to a state-qualifying competition following a strong subsection performance on Wednesday.
Judges ranked Park's ranked as first in the Section 3AA One-Act Play competition, while East Ridge High School placed second, according to Steve Estenson who directs the Park show with Denise Atkinson..
The two teams are scheduled to compete with Bloomington-Kennedy and Eagan high schools on Wednesday, Jan. 30, at Park, with the highest-ranked play going on to state competition.
There were the usual jitters that come with a first performance before an audience, Estenson said. There was also the added pressure of being judged in a contest, but the Park cast came through it, he said.
