Aitkin High School’s one-act competition play “Darklight” took first place at its Minnesota State High School League subsection over the weekend, qualifying for sections.

Aitkin High School’s one-act play, “Darklight” by Lindsay Price, won its Minnesota State High School League one-act virtual competition over the weekend.

Director Kelly Blake said that the group received notice that it had won Sunday afternoon.

“We are very excited to advance to sectionals,” Blake said.

Now comes the challenging part for Aitkin – only one play will be chosen from this next weekend’s section competition.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all schools are submitting recordings of their performances. Aitkin will attempt a new recording with any improvements this week, and will have to win the section competition to advance to state.
