On December 3, 2019, the Silver Lake One Act team rode to Shickley to compete against many other schools for the chance to make it to state. At the show, the team put their best foot forward and pulled their way through the competition. In spite of a few sick cast members, a boiling hot stage, and the rush for a missing costume, everyone played their characters as if they truly were people! Sadly, state wasn’t meant to be claimed by Silver Lake. However, it was a very close call. The Silver Lake team clutched third place easily, with merely a one-point difference between them and the second-place team, Shickley.
Many performers even earned rewards for their performances, including Shaylen Beaty, Anthony Niemeyer, Braden Karr, Jenna Strampher, Samantha Bonifas, Tyler Cumpston, and Ashley Jensby who all won ‘Outstanding Performance’ awards! It can surely be concluded that, if the admirable effort and amazing performances continue, Silver Lake may just claim state in the coming year or two!
