March 29th, 2011 the SHHS drama department competed in Region Drama against Springville, Payson, Maple Mountain, and Spanish Fork. Salem Hills came away very successfully with their 1 act play, going on to state and sending 4 individual actors to the State Competition.
Anna Peterson received straight superiors with her monologue and was honored. “It feels great, it’s my first time acting so it was a really good experience, and I’m glad I get to compete in state,” said Anna Peterson.
DeGrey Christensen also received straight superiors, “It was really cool, I’m feeling good about it and am feeling confident about state.” DeGrey competed in the Musical Theatre category.
Also going to state is Andre Salcido in the Musical Theatre category, and Tim Ellis in the Pantomime category.
SHHS also competed in the one act competition; they did extremely well and were the only school in Region 8 to receive straight superiors in the one act.
Kandalyn Russell and Jordan Geyerman also received individual acting honors for superior acting ability. “It was really cool, we both deserved it and worked very hard to get to that point,” Said Kandalyn.
Overall it was a great success for Salem Hills and we congratulate the SHHS drama department, and wish them good luck at State.
“I was surprised, I thought our whole team did well, but I didn’t think I would receive an award, but I’m very grateful and excited to compete at state,” said Jordan Geyerman.
