First Runners-Up

NCT takes second place at regional play competition with ‘Lone Star’

The Newton Community Theatre won first runner-up honors at the American Association of Community Theatres regional competition last weekend in Fargo, N.D.

The troupe’s performance of “Lone Star” also garnered an Outstanding Actor Award for Scott Schaeffer and an Outstanding Set Design Award for Wanda Blount and Mike Beukema. NCT competed against six other productions from Minnesota, South Dakota, Iowa and Nebraska. Sioux City Community Theatre, which took runner-up honors a few weeks ago at the Iowa Association of Community Theatres state competition in Newton, took third place at the regional competition.

The theatre group from Bloomington, Minn., advanced to the national competition in Carmel, Ind., in June with its production of “Leading Ladies.”
