Sequoyah High School has won the Region 7AAAAA One-Act Play Competition with a performance of “The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail” and will compete at the state championship on Saturday
The competition was held on Saturday at Sequoyah High School with eight seven other schools competing: Creekview, Pope, Cambridge, Kell, Sprayberry, Northview and Forsyth Central. The state championships will be held at Perry High School with eight schools competing.
Sequoyah students Leslie Roberston (as Ellen Sewell) and Travis Gore (as Henry Thoreau) were named to the Region All Star Cast.
This is the school's ninth region championship since it opened in August 1990, and the school has placed in the top three every year for 23 consecutive years. Sequoyah has also placed in the top three twice at state competition.
Sequoyah's performance is directed by teacher Gerald Parker, with guest direction by Janice Lewis, who directed the school’s drama program prior to Mr. Parker.
