Redwater High School

Redwater High School Dragon Theatre placed second at their district’s One Act Play competition, advancing them to the Bi-District contest. There, they would go on to place fifth.

A one act play is, as the title suggests, a play featuring only one act. The University Interscholastic League’s (or UIL) One Act Play contest allows for high schools throughout Texas to compete at different levels. These include zone, district, bi-district, area, region, and state. Judges select three performances to advance to the next level. It was at the 14-3A district contest that Redwater placed second with their performance of Christopher Durang’s “The Actor’s Nightmare.” This placement advanced them to the bi-district competition. Redwater Dragon Theatre would go on to place fifth there. While that win didn’t advance them to the next round, it’s nonetheless a noteworthy achievement for the group.
