The cast and crew earned second place at Subsections with a judge’s ranking of 1-1-5 and was named the top play at Sections with a perfect 1-1-1 rating. .Judges’ scores are based on placing each show out of all the acts they saw, meaning a 1 is the highest score possible.
“It was more of a team,” Avery Russek 26’ said. “Everybody likes everybody and everybody was one.”
Everyone working and advancing their skills together brought what was previously assorted theatre students into a team. This year’s crew featured two freshmen.
“The seniors were super inviting, and they never got cocky,” Russek said.
Bury the Dead was not among the three schools that received a Starred Performance Rating at the State Festival.
