Hamilton’s theatre department put on a one act called At the Bottom of Lake Missoula which took second place in the state at the ITS one act competition. It was recently performed for an audience at Hamilton, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

The one act is about a college student named Pam that leaves from visiting her family early, only to find out that they died in a tornado the next day. Throughout the one act, she deals with the loss of her family, survivor’s guilt, and getting through college.

After seeing this heart-wrenching play, one audience member Aundrea Lester (10) stated that “The actor’s timing and emotion really stood out and made you go through all the emotions Pam did” displaying that this one act was made incredible by the superb acting and directing.

The director of At the Bottom of Lake Missoula, Christina Vail, said “I think the message of this particular show is that it’s important for someone that suffered something like this to reach out and let someone in.” Because of the fact that the events in this one act could have actually happened, it felt very real for many people, so it’s message was just as real.

This one act brought everyone a lot of sadness and realization. You think that something like this could never happen to you, but it can. And that is how this show struck a lot of emotional chords.
