One Act.

One production.

One family.

On Friday, Nov. 17 Homestead’s One Act Class swept the state competition at UW-Whitewater. The class put on the show “The Light Burns Blue” by Sylvia Semerciyan. The show was inspired by the true story of the Cottingley Fairies. Seventeen-year-old Elsie Wright fools the world into believing she has photographed fairies in her garden. An ambitious young reporter seeks to expose Elsie as a fraud.

The cast won all of the possible awards including outstanding ensemble and the coveted critic’s choice award. The crew won an outstanding crew award. Amelia Figg-Franzoi, drama teacher and Sierra Mackiewicz, junior, won the outstanding directing award.

Five actors, Bella Gabor, Megan Siatcynski and Claire Looker, juniors, and Gwen Cain and Renee Schwarz, seniors, also won individual outstanding acting awards.

“We ended up winning all possible awards and five acting awards. The rest of the weekend we got to watch other shows and get to meet and bond with other One Act students across the state. It was a really amazing experience and what made it really great was the fact that I got to spend three days with my second family, watching amazing theatre,” Schwarz said.

The cast began their final performance by dedicating their performance to their director, Figg-Franzoi, stating, “For Amelia who requested a play about fairies.”
