Leigh One-Act Places Third at Conference Competition

By: Carter Brabec, a freshman at Leigh High School


The Leigh One-Act was headed to conference one act on Tuesday, November 16. This is the second performance of their play, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. 

They performed the play and ended up going over time so they had to get dropped a rank. They ended that day off getting third place. Oakland Craig placed first, and Lyons-Decatur barely passed Leigh. 

The Leigh one act had many kids that won “Outstanding Performance” awards; these actors were Aiden Miller, Audie Tejkl, Kanyon Held, and Morgan Bunner. There were many other outstanding actresses that won the outstanding awards, including Gabriel Pinkston, Makenna Held, Macy Clausen, Jessica Hoffman and Brianne Kuhr. Morgan Bunner also received the prestigious “Best Supporting Actor in the Conference” award.

“Conference was a great chance to compete against other teams, and see what the judges said we should work on. It gave us another opportunity to perform in front of an audience,” said Brianne Kuhr, a freshman who plays Tobias Bragg in the play.  

“I am incredibly proud of our kids and their performance today,” Director Justine Fischer said.  “We know we have a lot of work to do to make this the best production it can be, but we are prepared to do that!  Considering our set was too big to fit on the stage and our kids’ heads were in the lights, today went as good as it could have, I think! We are very happy with how we placed, and I am so proud of how dedicated our kids have been to this production!”
