Hamilton High School’s one-act play came away with several prestigious awards at the 2007 State High School Theater Festival in Stevens Point. The cast and crew of “Lepers” received an All State Award. In addition, the entire cast received an Ensemble Acting Award.
“You and your school should be extremely proud of your drama program and the accomplishment of this entire cast and crew who represented Hamilton High School in such an outstanding manner,” wrote Wisconsin High School Forensic Association Executive Director Chuck Malone.
“Lepers,” written by Robert G. Barone, is about a group of women living on the fringes of society. The women, wrapped in bandages and loneliness, deal with denial and acceptance of being the unwanted. They embody the alienated – the homeless, the poor, the diseased, the unpopular. This is the story of their struggle, persevering with the never ceasing ability to dream and to love.
Members of the production were Sarah Buck, Jaclyn Michl, Kristin Souvigny, Stephanie Keller, Joshua Greiveldinger, Erin Swierczek, Gabrielle Mears, Nicholas Sawatzki and Kyle Florence.
Hamilton communication arts teachers Erin Brigham and Addie Starrett advised the student production.
