Competition looked different this school year, but Choctaw High School Drama and Stagecraft has done it again.
Choctaw’s theatre program has claimed their 15th Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association Class 6A One Act State Championship with a breathtaking one-act performance of The Children’s Hour by Lillian Hellman.
All-State Actors include Anna Dewey, Alyx Sabina and Evelyn Banker.
This year competition was done virtually due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Choctaw’s one-act cutting secured gold in the virtual regional and advanced CHS on to virtual OSSAA State One Act Play competition.
Choctaw’s OSSAA Regional All-Star Actors were Alyx Sabina, Ryleigh Andrews, Anna Dewey and Evie Banker.
“It has been a long and ever-changing journey, but I’m so very proud of the work my students left on that stage. Bravo and Brava to cast and crew,” said director Maryjane Burton.
The new one-act play hardware claimed by CHS expands the theatre program’s prestigious record as the state’s most awarded high school.
