Congratulations to the cast and crew of our 2024 UIL One Act Play, The Tin Woman!
These Shining Lives chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and its continued resonance. Catherine and her friends are dying, it’s true; but theirs is a story of survival in its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits—or endanger the lives of those who come after them.
Performances will be held Friday & Saturday, November 17 & 18 at 7:00 PM in the Smithville Elementary Cafetorium. Tickets are $5 and should be purchased in advance at: https://spicket.events/smithville.
