Two CHSâï¿½ï¿½students qualify for state oral interp
Published: Thursday, November 29th, 2012
Two Custer High School students were ranked as the top two interpreters among the region’s best on Tuesday, Nov. 20. They were adjudicated by professionals in fine arts, public speaking and communications.
Oral Interpretation consists of seven categories: non-original oratory, interpretation of serious plays, interpretation of serious prose, poetry reading, humorous reading, duet interpretation and readers theatre.
Students may compete in any two categories plus readers theatre. Readers theatre consists of three to six team members and is the only category where students may use unpublished literature. The readers theatre was a modern take on the classic children’s tale “The Cat in the Hat” and was written by Cody Bawdon.
Two students, Cody Bawdon and Karrah Dawson, will now advace to the state festival in Yankton Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.
Bawdon will represent Custer in the category interpretation of serious plays, performing "Disturbed."
Bawdon and Karrah Dawson advanced in the duet category and will perform "Dr. Fritz."
Dawson also earned the alternate position in the non-original oratory category with her piece "It's Not My Fault....Whose Responsibility is it Anyway."
