Northern Division:

Palace Players Youth - Down Came The Rain by Burgess Clark *

Eighteen-year-old Michael and his fourteen-year-old brother Brucie -- who has been considered mentally "slow" since birth -- venture out on a camping trip together. Brucie's never-ending curiosity becomes increasingly unbearable to Michael, especially when the questions involve the death of their mother. Down Came the Rain is a touching, sad, and ultimately hopeful exploration of two vastly different brothers, and how they navigate the delicacy of family and truth.

Eastern Division:

Aberdour Players Youth Theatre - The Importance of Being Earnest (abr) by Oscar Wilde

In this one-act adaptation of Oscar Wilde's beloved romantic comedy, the stakes are even higher and the deadlines even tighter for poor Jack Worthing, whose alter ego "Ernest" comes back to haunt him in the form of his rakish friend Algernon Montcrieff, who adopts the false identity to woo Jack's ward Cecily.
