Middle School Theatre Students Compete in One-Act Play

Feb 23, 2018

Frisco ISD middle school theatre programs competed in the District University Interscholastic League One-Act Play Competition this past weekend, Feb. 17.

Cade Butler of Independence High School and lead theatre teacher for the District, was extremely complimentary of the work done by the District’s youngest thespians and their teachers during the past two weeks. The schools competed at Zone level and then at District level. Butler says he had a difficult time believing they were in middle school.

“The acting, the design, the technical execution, the storytelling, and the production value this year was through the roof! We had 16 beautiful productions the past two weeks, and I am truly honored to have been a witness to it all,” he said.

The top three school productions were:

1. Scoggins MS - “Blue Stockings”

3. Staley MS - “The Shape of the Grave”
