CHS One Acts Prepares for Performance

The cast and crew of Chadron High School One Acts has been working tirelessly to prepare for their public performance on November 9. 
     The group is hosting their sole fundraiser --a dinner theatre-- on Friday, November 9. Tickets are $12 for the dinner, performance, and dessert; they can be pre-purchased from any member of One Acts or at the high school office. Tickets will also be sold at the door.
     If members of the public do not wish to eat the dinner, they can pay $5 to watch the performance and eat dessert afterwards.
     For the dinner portion of the event, One Acts has partnered with Cardinal Singers to provide a taco bar from 5:30-7:00 PM in the CHS commons area. Members of Cardinal Singers will help serve at the event. Profits will be split evenly between the two clubs. 
     At 7:00 PM, the performance will begin in the auditorium. A sample of desserts will be provided in the commons following the play.
     The One Act being presented this year is Rosie the Riveter. It is a 30 minute play focusing on Rosie O'Connell, a woman in World War II who converts an auto shop into a government factory in charge of producing airplane parts.
     Senior and four-year veteran to One Acts, Abby Hyer, plays the lead. She said of Rosie, "She is really just a phenomenal woman of the time who is definitely pushing the envelope in many ways."
     One Acts is a competitive event. Chadron will compete for the first time the day after the dinner theatre at Western Conference. The competition will be held in Scottsbluff, NE, as a precursor to Districts later that month.
     The group coaches are Jill Paopao and Rebecca Dubs. Mrs. Paopao said they have been preparing for performance since mid-September, having about 3 to 4 practices each week. "We are not quite ready to perform, but we are close. We have some polishing to do, but we will get that taken care of at the end of this week."
     There are 27 high school students in the cast and 11 in the crew.
