One Act Play is getting ready for the Area contest on April 6 at Barbers Hill after advancing with a second place win at Bi-District on March 28. The following students won individual  awards: Darian Simmons (Outstanding Tech), Walker Smith (Honorable Mention), Eli Ridout (All-Star Cast), Lucas Ridout (All-Star Cast), Ashlyn Ellis (Best Actress). 

The theatre program devotes many hours to making this year’s production better and getting ready to perform once again. 

To prepare for Area, we’re going to practice scenes and go over everything the judges have suggested we change,” junior Abby Barboreck said. “Individually, I’m working on my role and trying to figure out what I can do to better myself for the program.

One Act play is a UIL event for theatre troupes around Texas to prepare and perform a one act show for an audience and judges. Every school performs their individual show in front of the audience and receives awards after all schools’ shows have been performed. In addition to the award for advancing onto the next round in competition, there are other awards such as: Best Technical Theatre, Best All-Around Actor, and All-Star Cast. 

The best part about being in the LCM theatre program is having a support system that you know is there for you, and also being surrounded by supportive and accepting people,” senior Ashlyn Ellis said. 

Before performance day, there are many hours devoted to practice with fellow troupe members. The theatre troupe will work on their character or role in the play, run the show, and work on improving any details or scenes. Theatre holds practices daily after school and on some weekend days to put every effort into having their best show ready for performance day. 

We will continue to work our hardest and try to represent Little Cypress as best we can,” senior Eli Ridout said. “We’re also very grateful for our theatre director for helping us in every way she can. She hasn’t been here long, but she has been such a great director to us.”
