THS’s one-act play ‘Fidget’ advances to sectional competition
For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – The cast and crew of Tomahawk High School’s one-act play “Fidget” received a unanimous advance to the sectional competition. They submitted a sectional recording of their production Friday in hopes of advancing to state judging in early December, said Director Michele Balda.
“This year the Wisconsin High School Forensics Association is holding both its Theatre and Speech seasons through an online format,” Balda explained. “Schools upload their productions to the website and are adjudicated based on their recording. If submitted as a staged, in-person play, which ours is, all students must be masked at all times and maintain six feet of social distancing as much as possible. While these changes have met with a number of challenges, our students have embraced the opportunity to be back in the auditorium doing what they love.”
