For the second year in a row, the cast and crew of Gibraltar’s One-Act Plays came home with a collection of awards from the state one acts contest. Held last weekend on the campus of LaCrosse’s Viterbo University, Gibraltar earned a critic’s choice award in addition to honors for outstanding ensemble, crew, and directors. Lia Smith also won an outstanding actor award. Director Lizz Thomas was impressed by how well the group did since they performed “Death’s Door,” an original work written by the students.
Gibraltar was one of only eight schools to earn a critic’s choice award at the State Theater Festival. Thomas says their focus will turn to May’s production of “Hello! My Baby,” a musical chosen in honor of Gibraltar’s 100th anniversary.
