NORFOLK— While one judge gave Arnold a first-place vote, it was not enough to close the gap between them and St. Mary’s in the Class D2 NSAA State Play Production Championships in Norfolk.
St. Mary’s was given two first-place rankings and a third-place ranking from the three judges, while Arnold was given first, second, and third-place rankings from the judges. The two first-place votes were enough to give St. Mary’s the top spot and their first state title in 16 years.
With the second-place finish, Arnold will have another trophy to add to the case for the first time since 2001, where they also finished runner up in class D1.
Play production is 100% a team effort from actors to the crew. This team effort was also rewarded at the championships, as Arnold was awarded the Outstanding Technical Crew.
