Places Second in Humorous Duet Acting; Goes on to February 17 State Tournament

RICHTON PARK, ILL.—(ENEWSPF)–February 12, 2018

By: Richard Barry

Southland College Prep Charter High School won first place in the Illinois High School Association’s Performance in the Round Sectional tournament hosted by Thornton High School, Harvey February 10.

A 10-member troupe of actors, musicians and student directors staged “We Were Just Children,” an original Performance in the Round piece written by Southland speech and theater faculty member Lauren Wells. Her production is a very powerful narrative about the recollections of African-American young people who survived the horrendous bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963.

Cast members of the first place Performance in the Round entry are: juniors Alexis Eiland, Angelica Ferguson, Keiyonte Ugbesia, Indya Gettings and sophomore Trinity Price. Student directors and musicians are seniors Kaitlyn Barksdale and Kassidy Hayslett, juniors Jayden Posley and Terrance Mayfield and freshman Nyah Ware.

Southland juniors Armanti Reed and Markeia Kellogg placed second in the Humorous Duet Action section of the tournament with a performance of Fairy Tale.
