ADA, Okla. – Sequoyah High School’s drama department placed fourth overall in the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association’s One-Act Play Competition on Oct. 28 on the East Central University campus.

Teams were judged on their sets, crew loads in and loads out of the set, acting abilities and directing, with rules requiring the production be completed in less than 45 minutes.

To qualify, the SHS drama team first competed at regionals held Oct. 6 at Oologah High School where it placed second, advancing to state.

SHS senior Katelyn Morton and junior Michael Lenaburg received All-State actor awards and will receive All-State letter jackets for the achievements.

“I’ve been acting under my drama mama and teacher, Mrs. (Amanda) Ray, since I started as a freshman at Sequoyah Schools. To achieve the All-State actor award as a senior is very special to me. I want to thank fellow All-State actor Michael Lenaburg, my SHS drama team and Mrs. Ray for allowing me to take part in this awesome competition,” Morton said.
