Now, The Last Fill will advance to SDA 2019 Provincial High School Festival.

The Mary Ellen Burgess Performance Award, the top acting award of the Regin 4 Festival, was won by Tess Jendrasheske from Sacred Heart High School for her portrayal of Daisy in The Last Fill.

The Acting Award of Merit for the role of The Gas Man in the same play was won by Klay Sawatsky.

“I was very proud of my students in the cast and crew of ‘The Last Fill’ as I felt they performed the play as well as they possibly could, especially Tess and Klay in the lead roles,” said Digout, who directed the students.

“The level of difficulty for the two lead actors was very high, and for them to do so well under the pressure of competition and in front of a large audience was remarkable.”
