Three Yosemite High School Theater Arts students, Lance Litton, Colton Sterling and Hannah McMechan earned multiple awards at the April 10 Valley Invitational Drama Festival at Fresno City College.
Sterling, a senior, earned an Outstanding Acting Award for work as the nodding mortician in the play "Funeral Parlor."
Juniors Litton and McMechan both placed second in two different acting competitions.
Litton was second from more than 120 drama students performing monologues from plays written after 1950. Litton had the audience howling with laughter performing the role of Murray from the play "A Thousand Clowns."
McMechan was second out of more than 140 young women performing" monologues from plays written before 1800. McMechan impressed the judges with her command of Shakespeare as she performed as Viola from "Twelfth Night."
All three performers can be seen in the upcoming comedy "The Love of Three Orange," May 2-4 in the Yosemite High School Theatre.
