Gibraltar records one-act winner

Gibraltar is used to having success at the state one-acts festival, but never quite like this. Earlier this month, six students presented the one-act play “Loose Parts,” which is a series of vignettes based on the lives of people coping with the pandemic in their own ways. Written by Gibraltar students Adela Tesnow and Lilliana Sweeney, the one-act play won state awards for its ensemble, director, and Critics Choice. Lexie Henkel and Audrey Viste also captured honors for their acting. The pandemic played in a role in the challenges the kids faced this year. Gibraltar High School students have not been in-person for instruction since March, so the actors had to record their parts remotely with sometimes no one to do the lines with. Director Liz Thomas says it made it difficult, but not impossible.

The production also had to deal with one member of the one-acts dropping out and poor Internet, but Thomas says the kids learned a lot through the experience. Luxemburg-Casco and Algoma also participated in the event.
