Caledonia drama students topped the awards at the Northwest Zone High School Drama Festival in Prince Rupert.

Ben McDaniel was recognized for excellence in acting in One-Lane Bridge.

The play, directed by Robin Macleod, received awards for set, costumes, lighting, sound, and best play; the last award means the play was chosen to represent the zone at provincials in New Westminster in May.

And Cal’s play Twitch, directed by Graham Wojdak, saw Brielle Dorais Fleming and Zach Pflum receive honourable mentions for acting.

Bailey Brown and Mikayla Seaton ran sound and lights for both plays.

Both plays will be performed here as a fundraiser at the end of April with the money raised going to help pay for the trip to provincials, which includes getting 13 people and the play’s set to New Westminster.
