Hamilton students move on to state competition

Hamilton High School one-act play performers will move on to state competition after advancing in both district and sectional competitions. Students will compete Nov. 21 at the State Drama Festival in LaCrosse.

Students performed the one-act play “Candid,” in which a student tells a teacher his life’s troubles. After earning the highest possible advances at district competition in October and at sectional competition in November, the cast is among elite performers who will compete at state.

Teacher and play director Steve Younk said the students are shooting for a Critic’s Choice Award because they earned the highest number of advances possible at both district and sectional competition. Sectional judges commended the cast on convincing character portrayals and solid understanding of the script.

Students involved in the production are:

  • Jamie Burns;
  • Matthew Fiss;
  • Christopher Gaza;
  • Whitney Zahn;
  • Edward Burg;
  • Sean Devine;
  • Heather Herrmann;
  • Kelsey Raffel; and
  • Kyle Biss.

Technical director is Hamilton graduate Alex Carus.
