LCHS students competed in the 2019 West Virginia Theatre Association’s High School Theatre Festival at WV Wesleyan College November 7. 

The students preformed The Proposal by Anton Chekov. This is a three-person one act play. The cast included Asa Krinov, freshman; Ian McCourt, freshman; Brooke Williams, freshman.  

This was the first time LCHS had a completely freshman-casted one act, Mr. Doug Seckman, theatre teacher, said. 

“I was shocked and excited to see how this was (going to) go because the cast was all freshman,” Eli Virden, senior, said about the decision to cast all freshmen. 

These three students, however, were not the only students who helped earn the superior ratings given to LCHS. Eli Virden, senior; Morgan Hawkins, freshman; Kassandra Hughes, senior, also helped. Virden and Hawkins helped by working the lights and sound for the show and Hughes introduced the show. Hughes also auditioned in front of colleges at this event.  

Although the show did not win the competition, they received superior ratings. Everything was rated out of four and the lowest given to LCHS was a 2.75. LCHS also received several fours. Two acting awards were given to each school that participated. The winners of the LCHS awards were Krinov and Williams. 

“Yes, very happy. I was happy with the outcome because we worked very hard, and it was recognized,” Seckman said. 

 All these students will go to Robert C. Byrd High School January 20 to compete again. Depending on the ratings they receive in January, the students could have the opportunity to go to the state competition in Huntington March 12-14
