Buford High School is synonymous with achieving success whether that comes in the form of an athletic championship or a major accomplishment through their fine arts department. The BHS Wolf Pack Players attended the GHSA One Act Play State AAAAA Championship on November 10, 2018, at Mary Persons High School in Forsyth, Georgia. Buford One Act is no stranger to doing well at the GHSA State One Act. Buford has placed in the top three since 2015 with their last Championship title coming in 2017.
The BHS Wolf Pack Players won the GHSA One Act Play State AAAAA Championship performing Stephen Sondheim’s Company. Company is a musical that chronicles the adventures of Robert, a young man struggling to navigate friendships and relationships in New York City in the 1970’s.
Buford had three cast members recognized for their work on top of being named State AAAAA Champions. Avery Long, who played Amy, as well as, Chloe Bonds who plays Joanne were named to the All-star Cast. For his role as Robert, Trevor Dodge was awarded overall Best Actor. All three cast members recognized are seniors.
This championship cast could not have been possible without the support and guidance of longtime BHS theater teacher, Kimberly Staples. Staples was assisted by fellow theater teacher Emily McClain (technical direction), and dance teacher Ashley Smith (choreography).
Congratulations to the students and staff involved with BHS One Act Play.
