The Westfield School returned home from the GISA Class AAA state One Act competition with a third-place finish and several individual awards. The event was held Nov. 7 at Darton College.
Westfield attended the state competition after placing second at the Region 2-AAA region competition held Oct. 30 at Stratford Academy with their version of Looking Glass Land, based on Lewis Carrolls Through the Looking-Glass.
This was the first time in the 11 years that I have been at Westfield that we have had to compete with the Macon schools, said Kathy Stubbs, Westfield drama director. I was very pleased at how we did because they are such strong schools.
Sarah Kate Johnson won an Outstanding Performance award at the region competition and again at the state competition for her performance as the White Queen. Outstanding Performance Award Honorable Mention was presented to the flower ensemble: Anna Davis, Avoly Pinckney and Sarah Kate Johnson.
Stubbs said that the play was very challenging since it contained so many roles. With the exception of Alice, all of the students involved in the play had to perform three or four roles.
They really had to stretch themselves, Stubbs said. Different characters, different voices, changing voices off stage. It was a challenge but a lot of fun.
