Wakeland Theatre students competed in the UIL One Act Play Competition on March 1st. The company put together a show called “Good For Otto”, which is set in a mental health clinic in Connecticut. Leah Zalenski, a Wakeland theatre junior, explains that the production backs into “realism and we’ve really been able to dive in to a story that really interprets mental illness and the true hardships of life”.

The company battled in the competition, being hopeful of advancing to the district competition, with the main goal of acquiring the state title. Although the company could not reach their goal since they did not end up advancing to districts, they are excited to work even harder next year.
