At the one act play sub-sections held on January 25, Moose Lake took second place out of their group of contestants. They will progress to the next level of competition in Aitkin on February 1. This is the first time in 11 years (since 2009) that Moose Lake's one act has progressed past sub-sections.

At competition, each play is limited to 35 minutes. Moose Lake finished in 34 minutes, down 46 minutes from the week before.

"Judges complimented our use of the stage, as well as sound and lighting effects," said Jason Schnoll, the play's director. "They acknowledged that this is a difficult play to perform under time constraints, as the plot builds very slowly at first to an emotional climax that drops abruptly at the end. This takes careful control and pacing."

Moose Lake will compete against five other schools, Eveleth-Gilbert, Chisholm, Esko, Aitkin, and Two Harbors, during the next stage of the competition on February 1.
