ConVal German Team Wins New England “Theaterfest”

Congratulations to ConVal Regional High School for winning first place in the New England-wide “Theaterfest” contest.

The Theaterfest was organized by the Department of German and Scandinavian Studies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. It featured dramatic presentations in German by middle, high school and college students from New England.

ConVal’s winning entry was a 15-minute short play entitled “Zapping” which portrays a person who is compulsively switching between cable channels. The resulting collision of dialogues between advice on a cooking show and commentaries on two different sports channels leads to puns, double entendres, and humorous word plays.

The German drama team consisted of Alexis Cleary, Rosie Crooker, Aria Frehner, Ben Kriebel, Grace Phillips, Greta Topping, and Finn Wegmueller. Congratulations, all, on this prestigious achievement!
