Congratulations to the SHS OAP team on their performance at District Contest! Individual awards were brought home by students, including: Honorable Mention All Star Cast for Callie Ruyle as Mother Magee and Connor Burns as Troll, All Star Cast for Kat Curry as Rosey Snow, and Outstanding Technician for Ayla Witt, who ran our lights for the show. We can’t wait to see all of our family and friends at this weekend’s public performances! Make sure to get your tickets today at: http://www.spicket.events/smithville.
Rosey Snow is a perfectly normal 1980’s teen who’s stuck in a life that is by turns funny and a bit demented. She has an attention-hungry stepmother, two stepsisters – one who’s perpetually depressed and one who’s not too bright, and a father who just can’t seem to find his pants. Throw in a bewildered prince, a nervous troll, an eccentric fairy godmother, and a possibly homicidal village idiot, and you’ve got an improbable fairy tale that ends up turning the whole Cinderella archetype on its head. Grotesque farce and romantic fantasy blend in this hilarious story that’s fun for the whole family. Cinderella Waltz is the 2023 UIL One Act Play contest piece for the Tiger Theatre Troupe, and per competition rules runs in just under 40 minutes. Performances will be held on Saturday, March 25th at 7 pm and Sunday, March 26th at 3 pm at the Smithville Elementary Cafetorium (800 Bishop St.). Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at: http://www.spicket.events/smithville.
The cast and crew of ‘Cinderella Waltz’ visited the Bastrop PAC this week for UIL OAP Clinic, where they received some very constructive critiques from one of the most experienced judges in the state. UIL District Contest will be held on Thursday, March 9th at the La Grange PAC. Smithville’s performance begins at 11 am. Admission at the door is typically $5.
Congratulations to the cast and crew of this year’s UIL One Act Play: Cinderella Waltz!
