By lody Markgraf, coach In a dark auditorium, a cell phone rings. The actors, in mid- performance, look out into the audience in disbelief at the rude interruption. A tiny blonde stands, answering her cell phone, and rushes out of the room, embar- rassed. That tiny blonde was actually a part of the cast performing "Din- ner with the MacGuffinns" on stage, and was the first role for Ken- zie Traurig in Kimball's One Act play program. The following year, classmates Janessa Dahle, Camen Miles, and Logan Bartholomew would join her on stage to perform "Asylum," a play about patients trapped in a mental institution. Since then, these four performers have formed a strong core for Kim- ball's one act program, coached by Jody Markgraf. Together, along with their castmates and crew, these students learned to develop characters, research details of his- tory, take direction, analyze criti- cism, and pull together as a group to create a theatrical performance. They applied these skills to Edmond Rostand's "Cyrano de Bergerac," a classic tale about a boy who loves a girl who loves a different boy. This tale of love, loss, and loyalty graced the How- ard Lake-Waverly-Winsted stage at the Subsection festival Sat- urday, Jan. 26. The cast, led by Camen Miles as Cyrano, Ken- zie Traurig as the beautiful Rox- Classroom of the Week: On stage is the presentation of Kimball's One-Act play Cyrano de Bergerac.
