Gibraltar One-Acts pile up awards at state contest

Gibraltar High School has made it a tradition to bring home many awards from the Wisconsin High School Theatre Festival, and this year was no exception. Performing "Paul Sills' Story Theatre," Gibraltar won the Critic's Choice, Ensemble, Directing, and Technical Theatre awards. Only 22 high schools across two theatres at UW-Whitewater won awards in all four categories. In addition, the cast also won several acting awards, including Cameron McEvoy as "Little Peasant, Sexton, Ma, Eldest son," Emerson Lecy as "Rich Peasant, Parson, crow, Simpleton," and B Salmi-Klotz as "Sound effects on stage." Paul Sills' Story Theatre is a play adapted from fairy tales collected by the Brothers Grimm and Aesop's Fables. The last time Gibraltar captured awards in all four categories was in 2018 when Lia Smith played the lead in "Death's Door."
