High School Threatre Competition
Special thanks to my grand-daughter who made this opportunity possible
By David Smith March 3, 2010
A high school competition; the acting was grand.
Three area schools in the auditorium to stand.
Some nine schools came out to compete
Three schools a night, the entertainment so sweet.
After three plays the evening came to an end.
A general evaluator his message to send.
He spoke of the lighting;
The stage hands got praise.
He talked of the acting;
How props flowed through the maze.
He gave meaning to each individual scene;
What actions represented,
And what the overall picture would mean.
Seeing my grand-daughter take the leading role;
To think of the dedication, how it pays a toll.
Weighing the cost; the distance everyone comes;
Put into life; a joy that hums.
A high school competition, the thrill to take part;
Parents were proud, felt from the heart.
