6 I The Lovell Chronicle I December 12, 2013 CHRISTMAS GIFT CERTIFICATE,( 1/2 PRICE GET YOURS TODAY Pizza On The Run Challenge of the Books Lovell Middle School students Grace Edwards and Paige Bischoff show their excitement as their reading team wins the honor of representing their school at the regional contest to be held at Rocky Mountain Middle School on Thursday, Dec. 12. PATTI CARPENTER PHOTO m, Nor Collag8 ogo MBrchandisB BY PATTI CARPENTER Three teams of book lovers com- peted for the honor of representing Lovell Middle School in a multi- school reading competition called the "Challenge of the Books" that was held at the school on Thursday, Dec. 5. The winning team will go on to compete against other schools at a regional challenge to be hosted by Rocky Mountain Middle School on Thursday, Dec. 12. Students competing on teams led by a captain selected books from a list of 12 books that were drawn from two lists recommend- ed by the Wyoming Library As- sociation. Each student read two or three books and then the team was challenged to identify a book and to name its author af- ter a quote was read to them by contest organizers Gwen Walker and Librarian Shelly Lohof. Team members were allowed to collab- orate during the game show like competition. Frank Minchow's team con- sisting of Larissa Tippetts, Cory Sessions, Anthony Ballard and Jared Wilkerson defeated Meyja McArthur's team of Justan Angal, Mikel May, Alea Mayes and Ty- lee Bassett in the first round, but they were unseated by a team led by Grace Edwards consisting of Paige Bischoff, Andrea Monterde, Lily Jones, Hunter Steenbakkers and Emily Mangus. The Edwards team imme- diately rushed to the library to check out more books from the list in anticipation of the next challenge level. The contest is designed for students who love to read and is meant to encour. age reading, comprehension and friendly competition. The newly established Wild West Players will in- augurate an ongoing com- munity theatre program in P6well with improvisation- al performances Friday and Saturday, Dec. 13 and 14. The shows begin at 8 p.m. both nights in the Nelson Performing Arts Center Auditorium at Northwest College. "We started the Wild West Players this fall," di- rector Fred Ebert said, "with the notion of estab- lishing a community the- atre troupe that can en- dure. With Northwest College as a cornerstone, we can explore a variety of theatre forms while build- ing and maintaining a sol- id core of community mem- bers, young and old, who enjoy working the stage." Ebert said the Decem- ber performances are the result of one of those explo- rations -- an improvisation workshop. "When it comes to the- atre," Ebert said, "improv is the hardest form to learn, let alone to master." Unlike most theatrical presentations, the actors have no prepared lines to deliver in what is usually a very controlled situation. Instead, they are totally de- pendent on the audience to drive the performance. The Wild West cast members will set up a va- riety of improvisational op- portunities ranging from singing to Wikipedia en- tries and unusual circus acts, but audience mem- bers will determine the top- ics and situational condi- tions of each act. Props figure promi- nently in many of the skits, and political topics are showcased, as well. In one set-up, audience members will draw character names out of a hat to assign im- provisers their role to play at a political after-election celebration. "Since this is such a new presentational form for our cast members," Ebert said, "we're also looking for test audiences Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 11 and 12, to help us work on our im- prov skills. If anyone is in- terested in being a victim, or make that a guest, on the preview evenings, show up at the door at 7:55 p.m." The Wild West cast fea- tures the improvisation- al talents of Carter Reed of Cody; Matthew Dil- lon of Greybull; Bobble Brown, James Hooper and Meryk McArthur of Lovell; and Alex Flom, Madison George, Josiah Hogan, Con- nie Moore and Troy Hunt of Powell. Admission to both pre- view and final performanc- es is free, but canned food donations will be accepted at the door to distribute to local food banks.
