Students from all over the Low Country crowded the halls of TGS on Tuesday, October 29 for the SCISA Regional One-Act Play competition. Wilson Hall, Florence Christian, Francis Xavier, and Coastal Christian arrived in Georgetown the normal way, while kids from Cross Schools flew into Georgetown Airport! “What a beautiful facility,” said the drama coach of Coastal Christian School as she made her way backstage with her team. Excitement was high and nerves were on edge as the competition began, but throughout the day everyone began to relax and have a great time.
Judy Gates, drama coach for TGS, was extremely pleased with our middle and high school students’ performance in Accused of Comedy, a lighthearted look a world where humor is against the law. She practiced with her students during study halls, lunches, and after school to get them ready for the event. The high school cast received an “Excellent” rating.
Later on that afternoon, SCISA activities coordinator Lyndi Bonnette wrote in an email, “I am already being flooded with emails and phone calls complimenting the host schools.” TGS students and faculty pulled together to make the day a success. We would like to thank our judges Jim Calk, Tracy Crane, Debby Summey, and Jeremy Vause, as well as all of the faculty, parents and volunteers who helped out and loaned us the stuff we needed. Thanks go to Dustin Ashenfelter for providing technical support and finally thanks go to The Winyah Auditorium, LLC, for allowing us to use its facilities.
