Gull Lake High School’s Performing Arts Company gave a magnificent performance of their winter production The Gift, written by Kendall Marlowe. The PAC team presented their play for audiences on January 28, January 29, February 4, and they will have their closing night on February 18 at the middle school. The Gift was also performed at MIFA Districts on January 30 where they received numerous awards and they will be heading to Regionals in Bangor, Michigan on February 13 with hopes of going to State Finals in Grand Rapids.
The cast of The Gift was wonderful; the main characters Stephanie and Linda were passionately played by freshman Mackenzie Sternburgh and senior Megan Scott. All the supporting actors and actresses helped carry out the story beautifully, including seniors Alannah Dowd, Jacob Goss, and Solomon Richardson; juniors Ethan Liggett, Erin Hope, and Hannah Monroe; sophomores Keyshawn Wilson and Dallas Fuller; and freshman Carley Wayman. The large crew made sure the show ran smoothly, with transitions, lights, music, props and costuming bringing the show together.
The Gift performance is only 45 minutes long, including transitions, due to the requirements for competing at MIFA, but in that short amount of time, a lovely story was told.
“The PAC team did an excellent job of putting on a play with such a emotional story; I really enjoyed watching it,” junior Hannah Devore said after viewing The Gift.
