For the first time in school history, Skutt Catholic has placed at a One-Act invitational. On Saturday, November 17, the competitive theatre team traveled to Kearney for the Kearney High Competition. It was their first competition of the season. The group ultimately took home second place.

This year’s production is titled “Elephant’s Graveyard,” and is the true tale of the tragedy between a traveling circus and a small town in 1916, which resulted in the only known lynching of an elephant. According to the playwright, George Brant, the play “combines historical fact and legend, and explores the deep-seated American craving for spectacle, violence and revenge.”

“I thought it was really cool to have placed so well at a competition,” said cast member and junior Abby Pearson. “Especially when this is our first competition and we literally made school history. I’m so excited to see where we go in the future.”

The one-act’s next competition is Tuesday, November 20th at the Lincoln High Festival at 4:30 p.m. The event is hosted all day and admission is free of charge.
