Bainbridge High School’s One-Act Play troupe traveled to Harris County over the weekend, where they competed at the regional competition and had three actors be named members of the All-Star Cast.

The troupe performed “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”

Director Leigh Powell said she picked this show based off the talent of the cast. She knew the students would really be able to pull off the roles assigned to them.

The students came out shining, with the best-prepared show and biggest ensemble yet, Powell said.

The show featured 31 members in the ensemble and was a force to be reckoned with against other region competitors such as Warner Robins, Harris County, Thomas County and Veterans. Powell was very proud of the cast and said she thought they did really well, despite the lack of time and practice space. The cast only practiced once on stage at the Kirbo Center before giving the public a sneak peek and heading to the competition.

Three members stood out and received certificates that named them members of the All-Star Cast. Micah Langdon, Rosie Rentz and Kaitlin Floyd were the three that received those honors.

“This is a big honor for those students,” Powell said.

While One-Act only takes place in the fall, the drama will continue.

Auditions for the spring musical will be held this month for Lion King Jr.

The musical will be a combined effort between Bainbridge Middle School and Bainbridge High School and will take place February 20, 21 and 22.

Powell will be holding a sponsorship drive in January to help fund the drama program and the musical they intend to put on, along with future productions.

She thanks everyone in advance for the support they give to the program and hopes to continue bringing shows to the stage.
