Recently, members of Osceola’s drama Troupe 3507 embarked on a journey to the District Four Theatrical Competition, where, according to Osceola’s theatre website, they competed in 34 events and performed their one-act play “Nobody Heard Me Cry.” The play is a production about the emotional unraveling of the protagonist, a teenager named Justin, who chronicles his angst through journal entries.

According to troupe member Matt Hamburg, Districts was a positive experience. “Everyone has a fun time and takes their critiques into consideration to improve themselves,” Hamburg said. Osceola’s troupe competed in events such as monologues, duet acting scenes, ensemble acting scenes, solo musical, duet musical, and pantomimes. Members of Osceola’s troupe that received the rating of a superior, the highest rating possible, in the duet acting category included Matt Hamburg and Rachel Kuruc, Elise Hall and Evie Lopez, Maddie Coppola and Parker Shamblin, Rachel Marley and Ben Daubert, and Brianna Strouble and Brianna Varner. Evie Lopez also received a superior for her monologue.

“Districts is great because it’s a way to perform your hardest and show what you have to offer and learn from others,” Hamburg said.
