• Talented Triton cast and crew adapt to challenges and shine

Triton's one-act play, "John Brown's Body," did not place in the tight, quality competition in the Section One Finals on Saturday in Winona. Filmore-Central advances to the state competition.

This year there were eight schools representing the various subsections around Southeastern Minnesota. Triton, scheduled last in the day, watched the morning productions, then waited in order to unload the bus during the lunch break, then prepared in the make-up rooms, and then had ten minutes to put up the set and learn the lighting on the much larger St. Mary's University's stage.

"The cast and crew adapted to the schedule and large stage extremely well," director John Schreiber said. "They started earlier on entrances and adjusting exits. Once the play began, the large crowd quickly responded to the depth of the play, and the cast was in complete control. It was, without a doubt, their best performance." Then he added, "Also, considering that this cast has only practiced in the library, that this was their third time to practice on a stage, the technical crew, as well as the cast, did a job far beyond anything asked by any cast I've ever worked with."

On a side note, John Schreiber's daughter, Anne Schreiber, a Triton graduate and director for Lewiston was tied for second with her one-act, but her crew landed third in the tie breaker.
