CFHS drama team closes out the season at the Section 1A drama contest
The Cannon Falls One Act team faced their last competition on Saturday, January 28th at Triton High School. “Going into Subsections I was hopeful,” states One Act captain Melissa Franz, “It’s always a guess as to whether you move on or not. My mindset prepared me to not move on but I really wanted to advance.” After a hard day of competitive acting, the group tied for fourth with Byron Schools, which sadly means they will not be moving onto Sections.
“I thought that we tackled a tough realism piece and that the judges were simply looking for something different that day,” says One Act director, Meghan Breithaupt. “It’s my opinion that conquering realism is more difficult, especially at the high school level because it’s an entirely different style of acting. The kids really showed connecting with their characters and even though we didn’t place, I consider the work we did to be some of the best I have seen out of our program.”
The group’s spirits are not shattered however, as they have high hopes for the upcoming Spring Play. “There are still some things we are working out,” comments Breithaupt, “but I’m hoping I will be allowed to direct it. If I am I would like to do the play, ‘Anne of Green Gables’.” Along with this, each participant in the One Act is also part of Cannon’s Speech team whose competitions will be starting up soon. “I’m super excited to switch my thoughts onto the speech season,” exclaims Franz, “I’ve always loved speech and I am excited for the competition to begin!” The team worked hard for their performance but now will get ready for next year with the motive to work hard and move on.
