Central Middle School took first place in its first middle school One Act Theater competition, CMS teacher Erin Webster told Eden Prairie News.
On Saturday, March 2, the CMS group performed “The Internet is a Distract- Oh Look! A Kitten” in the theater competition, held in Lino Lakes. They competed against three other productions, all of which lasted around 40 minutes with limited time to set the stage with props.
“The play is a humorous look at the internet and how quickly it can distract you from getting your work done,” Webster told Eden Prairie News in an email. “Our students did a phenomenal job.”
CMS’s Caitlin Warshaw also took home an award for best supporting actress for her role as Google.
The students in the one act are: Vivi Tabor, Caitlin Warshaw, Gwen O’Brien, Tyler Little, Mary Wolberg, Nathan Anderson, Alalyn Rainey, Shreya Saini, Kira Gorilla, Beth Dickenson, Josey Abbot, Megan Wilson, Abbe Johnson and Molly Corbett. They are coached by Webster, an English teacher at CMS, and Katie Skramstad, an English teacher and theater director at CMS.
