The Theater Program brought the house down last weekend at the Peoria Civic Center, earning the state title for their Group Interpretation and placing third in Drama. The Group Interpretation - How I Trumped Rudolf Steiner and Overcame the Tribulations of Illiteracy, One Snickers Bar at a Time – is the Theater Program’s 12th state title in the past 16 years.  All-State Cast Members for Group Interpretation were Noah Swanberg, Bianca Honeycutt, Jada Jackson, and Tomas Walsh. 
 
The contest play, Silent Sky, in addition to placing third place in state, also earned the state championship in “Drama Technical Performance ” for its set, lighting and sound. Earning individual honors, were Emma Stachowicz and Marc Nowak for Lighting.  All-State Cast Members for Contest Play were Abby Moore, Abbey Dayton, Grace Sievers, and Ella Moore.
 
Congratulations to both casts, the crew, and directors on jobs well done. 
 
Both shows will be part of our Evening of Theater this Friday and Saturday, April 5 & 6 at 7:00 PM.  Tickets are available on the school website www.olchs.org.
