WALES — Oak Hill High School’s drama club, Little Theatre in the Woods, won first place in the Regional Class B One-Act Festival and will move to the state competition at Oceanside High School in Rockland on Friday and Saturday, March 23 and 24.

“Our?Place,” written by Terry Gabbard, takes place on a dock extending onto a small lake. The scene is the backdrop for five stories.

On a cool autumn night, Jake ?arrives with Holly at a secluded spot. The couple feels an immediate? connection to this place as if it were put there just for them. Things? seem perfect until Anne and her date, Lyle, arrive.

On another day,? early in the morning, Beth has plans to spend the day with her dad at ?their favorite fishing place. She has high hopes for catching some? sunshine, a few fish and her dad’s fading memories.

The third story ?involves Al, who arrives at the dock with his family and has high ?expectations for their family canoe trip. The only problem is his? wife would rather stay inside, his son has a chip on his shoulder and? his daughter is really weird.

In the fourth story, Cory and Liberty ?are having a picnic lunch by the lake, but a realization about? tuna fish sandwiches sends a shock wave through their relationship and? brings about questions of who they are and what lies ahead for them.?


In the fifth story, Stanley escapes the hardships of his life to blow? off some steam on the dock when Sidney, his younger sister, arrives.? All he wants is for her to go away, but she insists on staying with? him.

The entire ensemble gathers on the dock for the final? scene. In a poetic epilogue, they all discover the true meaning of “Our ?Place” — both comedic and tragic.

Included in the cast are Nik Peterson,? Emma Curtis, Heaven Martin, Duncan Bisson, Jared Chase, Susan Stinson,? Casey Daigle, Jeremy Thibodeau, Michaela Gervais, James Greenwood,? Hailey Bean and Izik Juray, who also serves as the student director.
