GILLETTE, Wyo. — After almost a year of preparation, the Mormon youths spent three days performing the play \"Savior of the World\" in three towns. Instead of fun and games, the conference brought sleeping on school gymnasium floors and getting up early to practice all day then performing for the community in the evening.The first day the youth of the stake converged on the town of Sheridan, Wyo., meeting in their high school to run through of the play. There had been only one practice prior to that rehearsal, and not all of the youth were able to attend. Many of them didn't know where to go or what to do. About eight hours later, it was time to perform, and they hadn't even gotten through the second act.Nerves were high, but directors Gene and Nancy Hanson were ready to go.\"I know it is going to be great,\" play director Nancy Hanson told them. Hanson and her husband, Gene, have worked for the Campbell County School District in the theater department for the past 15 years and said this was old hat for them.See the full story on ldschurchnews.com.
