On November 18, the theatre department of Savannah Country Day School won the GHSA One-Act Play State Championship with their production of Peter and the Starcatcher. The 3A competition was held at Buford High School, with eight region champs competing for the state title. In addition to the championship win, individual awards included Best Actress Mollie Macfayden and All-Star cast Daniel Bosch and Ben Templeton.
“The dedication, focus, and determination of the entire cast and crew made this possible,” commented James Venhaus, Upper School Theatre Arts Teacher and Director of Fine and Performing Arts. “You never know what the judges will do, so we kept our focus on serving the script and telling the audience a story that was entertaining and, at times, deeply moving. This is the first One Act-Play State Championship in school history, and I couldn't be more proud of these students and of our school for supporting us every step of the way."
