UIL OAP 2020 Audition Announcement

Posted on December 1, 2019

We’re celebrating the roaring 20s with this year’s UIL One Act Play competition piece, The Great Gatsby. Join us as we bring the breathtaking glamour and decadent excess of the Jazz Age to the stage in Simon Levy’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel.

Major, minor, and non-speaking roles onstage, as well as several backstage positions, are available. Students interested in auditioning can view the audition packet in the Documents tab (above). Audition packets and scripts will be available in Mr. Hensley’s classroom starting tomorrow.

Coming Soon: ‘The Curious Savage’

Posted on October 31, 2019

Mrs. Savage has been left ten million dollars by her deceased husband and wants to make the best use of it. To prevent her from doing away with their family’s wealth and ruining their legacy, the Savage children have her committed to a sanatorium called The Cloisters, where she starts a new life among a group of misfits who cannot adjust themselves to regular society.  The self-seeking stepchildren are driven to distraction by their vain efforts to find the money hidden by Mrs. Savage, who keeps her composure while leading them on a merry chase. Through the simple belief in the justice of her cause, the residents of the Cloisters rally to help Mrs. Savage carry out her plans to establish a “Happiness Fund”, which would assist others in pursuing their “foolish dreams”.  The Curious Savage is a warm comedy that will leave you questioning who the sane ones really are. Performances of The Curious Savage will be held on November 21, 22, & 23 at 7:00 pm in the Smithville Elementary Cafetorium. Tickets are $3 for students & $5 for adults.

Patron of the Arts Fundraiser Results

Posted on October 22, 2019

Congratulations to the Drama Club, which recently completed the Patron of the Arts Fundraiser, ending with a total of $2,362 raised and exceeding all previous Theatre Department fundraising efforts.

The Drama Club Officers did an excellent job of leading the fundraiser from beginning to end, consistently keeping the group motivated and giving regular updates on sales progress. In the past month, 15 Drama Club members met with local community members to gain support for our program. As a result of that hard work, 33 patron packages and 6 business patron packages were sold. Several donations were also received.

The generosity of our new Patrons will help to cover the cost of sets, costumes, props, and student travel for the 2019-2020 school year.  This year’s Patrons are listed here — thank you so much to everyone who contributed!
