District Champions

By Caetlen Gyhra, Junior

    On Tuesday, December 2 the Pawnee City Play Production went to Nebraska City Lourdes to compete in districts, and they weren’t disappointed. They came home with the first place plaque and many other individuals awards. Outstanding performance awards went to Kellen Habegger, Steven Bruns, Macey Gyhra, JP Schiffbauer, Carly Hunzeker, Marissa Myers, Hannah Davis and John Mathewson. Kellen Habegger stated “It is a serious play and we try to get people right in the feels.” Judges were very impressed with the emotional depth, forest ensemble, artistic details, and difficulty level. Mrs. Bloss said “Compliments are nice, though, but critiques and suggestions are what we need to get better.” The team watched film and will have a practice Monday to work on improvements and details for state. The Play will compete at the Norfolk high school Thursday, December 11 at 10 am. Mrs. Bloss also stated “State competition will be hard--they’re all district winners. We’re out to win and they all are too!”
