Cumby High School advanced from zone competition to district with their One-Act Play, and had four cast members recognized for their performances.

Earning All Star Cast honors at the zone OAP contest held at Paris Junior College March 19 were Karson Goggans and Brianna Stone. Recognized as Honorable Mention Cast were Landon Mabe and Brent Brewer.

The students are scheduled to present their production of Stephen Hotchner’s play, “Love Is a Hot Fudge Sundae,” Wednesday at the district OAP contest, also held at PJC.

“Love Is a Hot Fudge Sundae” portrays the humor and pain of high school, complete with peer pressure, stress and the need to belong. It “focuses on the neglect and abuse of a withdrawn but talented girl.” An English teacher reads her stories out loud in class against her will. Her classmates have organized themselves into rigid cliques and cruelly reject her. One of her stories foretells the suicide of an overweight newcomer at the school, although the audience doesn’t know which of the two girls is the potential suicide victim. The cast of characters includes a cheerleader, an athlete, a kid who wants desperately to be popular, the class clown, the weirdo, an overweight girl and Bob — the only member of the math and astronomy club, according to the www.dramaticpublishing.com catalog listing.

Making up the cast are Landon Mabe, Erin Vaughan, Michaela Comer, Karson Goggans, Brianna Stone, Hope Greaves, Ty Fitch,  Joseph Fischer, Bailey Braddock, Brent Brewer and Tristan White.

The crew includes Shelbie Lackey, Madison Thomas, Taylor Petty, Jaycee Allen, Laura Rodriguez and Alysse Bullock.

Cumby English teacher Anita Comer is the one act play director.
