Temple Advances from Regional to State Meet

     Temple High's UIL One-Act Play Team is going back to the state meet. This will be the 5th time in the last six state meets that Temple has competed. (There was no state meet in 2020 because of COVID.) The team advanced from the regional meet held April 16-17 at University High in Waco. Temple was the first school out of eight to perform during the two-day event. Temple's 2021 play is Student Body by Frank Winters. Also advancing to the state meet was Waxahachie High with Blue Stockings. The alternate advancing school was George Washington Carver Magnet High from Houston.
     Genevieve Myers was named one of the two Best Performers in the region. Hanna Prince was named to the Regional All-Star Cast and Cameron Hooper was selected for the Regional Honorable Mention All-Star Cast. Daniel Salazar was named to the Regional All-Star Crew.
     The 6A state meet will be Friday, April 30 and Saturday, May 1 at Waxahachie High. Four schools will perform each day. Adjudicators will be Kim Frederick, Kelsey Kling and Kathy Harvey.
     At Waxahachie, Temple will be competing against Waxahachie High (Blue Stockings), Wolfforth: Frenship High (Blue Stockings), Harlingen High South (Anatomy of Gray), San Antonio: Taft High (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), Midland High (The Old Man and the Moon), Pearland: Dawson High (33 Variations) and Deer Park High (Moon Over Buffalo).
