The UIL Once Act Play (OAP) recently advanced from the district 6-AAA contest to the bi-district with their performance of “Any Body for Tea?”by C. B. Gilford.

At the district contest held in Bangs on March 8, junior Cale Wallace and senior Kimberly Bills were named to the All Star Cast for their outstanding performances. Senior Lizzy Stewart also received an honor crew award.

After three years as the theater director, Kara Thomas said this is the first time under her direction that a play has advanced to the bi-district contest.

“We are very proud of ourselves for advancing from district,” Thomas said. “We’ve had a great time with the play and we are looking forward to doing even better next year.”

The OAP cast and crew closed out the season with a disappointing loss at the bi-district contest in San Angelo on March 25 as they did not advance to the next round. However, Wallace was once again named to the All-Star Cast and junior DiDi Tomlinson was named to the Honorable Mention All-Star Cast.

Junior foreign exchange student Georgia Harris and sophomore Alexandra Farris also received technical awards at the bi-district contest.

“I feel like our performance at district and bi-district went really well,”  Harris said. “Everything ran very smoothly in the technical department.”

The OAP cast and crew will publicly present the award winning play on April 10 at 7 pm in the high school commons. Admission will be $2 per person, and the profits will go to support scholarships for the seniors.

The play is a light comedy that centers around Detective Dennis O’Finn (played by senior Zack Johnson) who while investigating the death of an elderly lady, discovers he is the motive for murder. Six sweet, but slightly balmy ladies, (played by Cheyenne Tatanish, Jennifer Duran, Kylei Hutson, Christian Mallory, Annette Calderon, and Bills) are all in love with the 40ish detective and hope to lure him to visit by staging a homicide.
