The top five winners in the New Canaan High School Theatre's 25th annual Drama Festival May 1 to 3 cast and directed their one-act plays.
Each year the festival offers one-act plays written by students, who are responsible for all aspects of the production. The festival's theme was "SNAP," which was interpreted in many ways by the student playwrights -- some recalled the finger snapping at a poetry reading, another a photographic snapshot; one play was about snapping emotionally.
The winning playwrights selected for the festival were:
First place: Charlotte and Lillian Engel for "Snapshot"
Third place: Elizabeth Koennecke and Lauren Mellinger for "The Snap of Your Fingers"
Fourth place: Lizzy Crigler and Annie Ludtke for "Irony"
Fifth place: Allegra D'Virgilio for "Snap"
