On Oct. 28 2023, the cast and crew of “The Spirit Of Life” won first place in the regional Georgia High School Association’s one act competition. The one act is a play under fifty five minutes. This is the first time McIntosh theater has won first place in four years. The last show to advance to the state one act competition was “Bellwether” in 2019. Drama teacher Ken Buswell went into the competition with mixed emotions. 

“I was a combination of so excited and so happy for everyone and also a little bit of relief as well because I always worry about what choices the judges will make and I always want the students to win. Especially [The Spirit of Life] because I thought [the cast] deserved to win and I was relieved that [the cast] did get the win,” Buswell said.

 In addition to winning first place, individual awards were given to senior Max Thompson for “Best Actor in the Region.” Junior Reese Marler won “Best Supporting Actor in the Region” junior Tyler Hooton and senior Hannah Scafe were awarded “All Star-Cast.”  

 Because the production is advancing, “The Spirit of Life” cast will perform for the public in the McIntosh auditorium on Nov. 8 2023 at 6 p.m. The show is free but donations are accepted.
