Olivia Coder and Sarah Schminke perform in the group mime.

For the second straight year, Vinton-Shellsburg speech and drama students ended their season with a public performance of many of the presentations that earned Division 1 ratings from judges at speech contests earlier this year. Sunday’s show included the one-act play that received All-State recognition. That play features David Steele and Hannah Haisman playing the roles of two teenagers discussing life and death.

Steele and Haisman also played leading roles in school plays, and were named the Actor and Actress of the Year.

The group mime also performed a skit called “No Selfie Control.”

Several individuals performed their Division 1 routines, including poems, music theater and reading.
