A couple of weeks ago, a drama competition commenced at Jordan High School. The competition in question occurred between four different schools: Jordan, Copper Hills, Murray, and our very own Cottonwood.  Standing out from the crowd, every participant from Cottonwood returned home with a medal, and an advance to State Competition at Bingham High.

There are six categories, and four participants or groups in each category. There’s Dramatic Monologue, which is an entire piece that is meant to have a serious – potentially even dark – tone. This is done by only one person. A Humorous Monologue is an entire piece that is meant to make the audience laugh, done by only one person. A Classical Scene is a scene featured from a play from someone like Shakespeare. A Contemporary Scene is a scene from a modern day play. Musical Theater consists of scenes that play out through song. Pantomime is an entire piece carried out by body actions, and there are no words or vocal sounds whatsoever.

Each group practiced their pieces diligently, following scripts for a while, then practicing without – with plenty of enthusiasm to boot. It was all of that hard work, determination, and enthusiasm that allowed every one of us to earn a medal, as well as a place in the state competition.

It’s a tremendous honor to be able to make it to the state competition. It didn’t seem like we would make it, considering how much better all of the other schools seemed to be compared to us. However, the announcers surprised everyone when they announced all of Cottonwood’s contestants would be advancing to State and receiving medals. One of the Cottonwood’s contestants, Paige Ney, even broke down in tears, overjoyed with Cottonwood’s unexpected success. This turn of events proved the superiority of Cottonwood’s Theater Department.

Stay tuned for updates on Cottonwood’s success at the state competition.
