Clarinda’s Cardinal Theatre speech members Kari VanNostrand and Kamdyn Beal were named as an “Outstanding Performance” in group improvisation and will perform at the Iowa High School Speech Association’s Large Group All State Festival Saturday, Feb. 16 at Iowa State University.
In group improvisation, the two are given a plot they do not know the details of in advance. The two then have two minutes to come up with their own script and then have no more than five minutes to perform. The two were named after competing Feb. 2 in West Des Moines.
Three more Clarinda groups were also named as Outstanding Performances, but will not be performing at the festival.
