Pequot Lakes' One Acts team places third
Pequot Lakes High School’s One Acts team placed third overall for its performance of “The Flying Doctor” at sectional competition.
Pequot Lakes hosted the competition Saturday, Feb. 1, at the school’s auditorium, where eight teams competed. The Pequot Lakes team moved up to the sectional competition after placing second at subsections, but did not place high enough to move to the state competition.
The team performed “The Flying Doctor,” a comedy by French playwright Moliere, in which all the men play women and women play men.
Director Gary Hirsch said that while the team won’t move on to the state competition, he felt the team performed well.
“I was very happy with the results. We placed well,” Hirsch said. “It’s tough to get out of sections and go to state.”
Park Rapids took first in the competition, and Eagle Valley High School, of Eagle Bend, took second.
