Maine Coast Waldorf School’s production of “Metamorphosis” placed first in the Maine Drama Festival Regional competition at Bonny Eagle HS on March 8. Students Charles Van West and Brenna Moore were named to the All-Festival Cast. Carly Blackburn, Lauren Eichler, Ava Teegarden, and Baxter Van West received special commendation for outstanding work as a dramatic chorus. The cast and crew of “Metamorphosis” qualified to perform at the state finals in Ellsworth March 22-23.
Class B runner-up Freeport High School also made a good showing in the Festival. Their performance of the student-written work “The Fourteen Known Offspring of Donor HH-247” at Medomak Valley HS generated a lot of buzz. Cast members Jefferson Lane, Bella Mezzapelle, Ben Morang, Shiloh Munsen, Maggie Ryan, and Sierra Zahares were named to the All-Festival Cast. Special commendations were given to student playwright/director Rhea Fitzpatrick, Kaity Sawicki for her multiple technical contributions, and the entire cast of 16 for ensemble acting.
Congratulations to everyone involved from both schools!
