With most winter activities giving way to spring programs, Chino Valley High has one lone hold out for state competition, as the CVHS Drama Dept. is headed to set to the State One Act Festival (SOAF), in Tempe on March 1.

"This is the first time Chino has ever submitted a one act to compete at the regionals, and we were only one of two schools to receive straight superior ratings out of 18 schools competing," said Layla Tenney, the CVHS drama advisor. Willow Canyon, a performance art school which Tenney said usually dominates the competition, was the other school at the regional Northern Arizona Acting Festival (NAAF) to advance to the SOAF.

Both the NAAF, held Feb. 2 at Greenway High in Glendale, and SOAF are Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA) sanctioned events.

Before traveling to Greenway, Tenney and her group performed their entry "Paper or Plastic" the night before the competition.

"That was one of the requirements, that we had to publicly perform the play before the competition," said Tenney. So after two performances on Feb. 1, the group tore down the set, loaded a truck, and hit the road at sun up to compete at NAAF.

"It was really good practice for them, and we decided to do it again before state," said Tenney.

The public will have an opportunity to see "Paper or Plastic," a one-act comedy by Werner Trieschmann, on Thursday, Feb. 28, in the CVHS theater. The price of admission is $4 with tickets available at the door.

For more information call the CVHS main office at 928-636-2298.
