Marshwood High School One-Act Play


This year’s one-act play will be part of a virtual Maine Drama Festival this weekend, and it will stream for free on Saturday, March 27 @ 7:00 PM. (The link will be emailed, and it will be posted on Marshwood Theatre’s Facebook page.)

The cast includes Gabi Giniusz, Riley Hanscom, Kate Adams, Janet Homans, Alana Moretti, and Tucker Whelan.

Written in New York City during the 2020 lockdown, WAITING FOR THE HOST is a show that is specifically meant to be performed remotely. (The MHS cast has rehearsed entirely on Zoom.)

SYNOPSIS: While theatres, playgrounds, schools, and churches are shuttered by a modern plague, the rector of a small church on Long Island gathers a handful of parishioners via Zoom in April 2020. His goal is to record a theatrical reading of the story of the Passion for the church website. As exes bicker and technology confuses, this socially distant endeavor quickly becomes chaotic. Still, in the effort, the group finds a strange, painful closeness, and that their comic and clumsy reading has become a kind of desperate prayer.

Maine basketball: Marshwood boys fall in OT to Kennebunk in tourney championship

Maine basketball: Marshwood boys fall in OT to Kennebunk in tourney championship

KENNEBUNK, Maine —The Marshwood High School boys basketball team saw “deja vu” strike in another overtime thriller at Kennebunk High School in the championship game of the inaugural Martin E. Ryan Memorial Tournament championship game on Friday night. 

For the second time in this week, the Rams outlasted Marshwood in overtime, winning 55-53. Kennebunk beat Marshwood on Tuesday, 70-68. 

The tournament was played in tribute of Ryan, who spent eight years as athletic director at Kennebunk High School. Ryan was also the Executive Director of the Maine Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association, and spent 29 years as a teacher, coach and administrator at Wells High School. 

Ryan, 73, passed away unexpectedly last month. 

“Just happy to be able to play in the Marty Ryan tournament,” Marshwood coach Bobby Pratt said. “We battled down to the wire, it was a great game. I’m happy for my guys.” 

Marshwood forward Aidan Sullivan, who won Maine’s free throw competition last month, was grateful for the opportunity to play.  

“It was really special to be able to have an opportunity to play for something like this,” he said. “I am appreciative of everyone who made it possible for us to play in a tournament style.” 

York beat Wells in the boys consolation final at York High School. 

Adam Lux’s two free throws gave Kennebunk a 50-48 lead with 3:37 left in overtime. 

Marshwood’s Andrew Perry (14 points) got the two points back with a tough finish in the post to knot the score at 50-50 with 3:21 remaining. 

“Good possessions on both sides,” said Pratt. “Good defense, good offense and just competing. I thought it was good.” 

The Rams re-gained the lead off a second-chance basket by Ian Murray, who scored 10 points in the game. 

Again, Marshwood answered.  

The Hawks’ Aidan Sullivan, who scored a team-high 15 points, hit a 3-pointer from the left wing to put Marshwood back on top 53-52 with 1:15 left. 

“We were always ready to answer back,” Sullivan said. “Hit a shot or get a stop to not let (Kennebunk) get all of the momentum.  

Unfortunately, it was the last lead Marshwood would have. Screen Shot 2021-03-13 at 10.49.32 AM

Lux tied the game at 53-all when he hit the front-end of a pair of free throws with 1:09 left. 

Lux missed the second, and Marshwood’s Kelvin Peterson got the rebound, but fell and was called for a traveling violation, giving Kennebunk possession with just over a minute left. 

Murray missed a go-ahead 3-pointer, giving the Hawks a chance to take the lead on the other end. 

This time, Marshwood did not answer. 

Jackson Theriault tried to squeeze a bounce pass in the lane, but it was stolen by Kennebunk, which led to a transition layup by Sam Tartre which gave Kennebunk a 55-53 lead with 40 seconds left. 

Marshwood had another opportunity to tie the game but turned the ball over. 

With 8.9 seconds left and the Rams lead still at 55-53, Tartre was at the free-throw line looking to ice the game for Kennebunk. 

Tartre missed both shots, Marshwood’s Peterson secured the board, dribbled to half-court and signaled for a timeout with 4.4 seconds left. 

Out of the timeout, Sullivan inbounded the ball to Perry who missed a turnaround, game-winning 3-point attempt. 

“When it got down to the wire, we drew up a play and got the look we wanted,” Sullivan said. “Just didn’t happen to fall for us, but wouldn’t have wanted a different shot than what we got.” 

“I’m really proud of these guys,” Kennebunk coach David Leal said.  

Lux scored a game-high 13 points for Kennebunk, while Aaron Waite and Murray each had 10. 

“(Kennebunk) can score in bunches,” Pratt said. “We gave up 70 the last time we played them, so this was the kind of game we wanted. I’m proud of my team. I think they played really hard.” 

Trailing 48-46 with 27 seconds left to play in regulation, Peterson drove to the basket and converted a contested layup, tying the game at 48-48. 

The Hawks tightened up on the defensive end forcing the ball out of Murray’s hands, and forced a Waite 3-point attempt that misfired, sending the game into a four-minute overtime.
