Silverton High presents one-act plays

By Melissa Wagoner

The Silverton High School Theater Department’s Spring One Acts hit the stage May 16 – 18 at 7 p.m. in the SHS auditorium. 

The lineup includes Little Women – an adaptation of the famous novel by Louisa May Alcott, directed by Maddy Rich;  a short comedy drama titled, The Audition, directed by Don Zolidis and Sofia Miranda; and Troubleshooting directed by Gianna Bischoff and Roman Pack.

“The play features characters Ken and Barbie. They are motivational speakers that have a book series titled, Troubleshooting for Teens,” Pack said of the show he is directing. He hopes the show will leave the audience in stitches. “What starts out as a few harmless tips for teenagers in trouble, quickly turns dangerous when Ken’s advice grows increasingly delusional as the evening wears on.”

Designed to give underclassmen the opportunity to play a starring role and upperclassmen the chance to direct, the One Acts are an annual tradition at SHS that is as fun for the students as it is for the audience.

“We’ve got some very talented individuals who’re having a lot of fun,” Pack said. “It’s fun for all!”

Arbor days: Tree experts weigh in on tree care following devastating storm

By Melissa Wagoner Within hours of the ice storm horticulturist Eric Hammond began walking, covering as many miles of Silverton’s streets as he could, cataloging the trees – the ones that were damaged, the ones that were toppled and the ones that made it through relatively unscathed. “I’m up to 3,300 different survey points and 130 different species,” Hammond said.
