Door and Kewaunee Counties will be well represented at UW-Milwaukee next weekend for the Wisconsin High School Theatre Festival. Luxemburg-Casco, Algoma, and Gibraltar will all compete in the one-act play contest during the course of the three-day event. Algoma performed its One-Act play, “Oz” one last time before the state competition at the Algoma Performing Arts Center earlier this week. A modern take-off on the “Wizard of Oz,” Director Jeffrey Dier is proud of how his actors and crew handle the changes that come with competing at the state level.
Local schools were successful at last year’s Wisconsin High School Theatre Festival One-Acts Contest with Algoma’s “Fourteen Lines” earning all-state honors and Gibraltar’s "Death’s Door" earning awards for being a critic’s choice as well for its crew, directing, and ensemble. The festival runs from November 21st through the 23rd.
