The cast of “Orientation” came in third in the regional one-act play competition held in Timber Lake on January 20 behind Faulkton School in first place and Newell in second. They were directed by Patty and Mark Peacock. The top two plays go on to compete at the state level which this year will be held at SDSU in Brookings during the first weekend in February. Dupree is the alternate.
Two Dupree actors were hailed for Individual Superior Acting medals, Malory Peacock and Shayna Farlee. “Orientation” tells the story of first year college students searching for good roommate matches.

Dan doesn’t even plan to shower some weekends because that could be time lost from fun!
