Middle School Thespians and Theatrical Design Impress at District

Mar 14, 2022

Scoggins UIL OAP Group PhotoCongratulations to the Frisco ISD Middle School theatre departments for a phenomenal spring season that has included the annual UIL Theatrical Design and One-Act Play contests. 

Six campuses advanced to the UIL Middle School One-Act Play District Contest including Clark, Fowler, Hunt, Lawler, Nelson and Scoggins middle schools.   

Throughout the contest, each troupe dazzled on the stage, exemplifying skills well beyond their years. In the end, Scoggins Middle School took first place with their production “The Old Man and the Old Moon.” The Hunt production of “A Midsummer Night's Dream” took second place and Nelson claimed third place with “Peter/Wendy.”

There are months of preparation that goes into planning, studying and building for what goes on before, during and after a performance. 

Lebanon Trail High School Theatre Director Michael Hollomon marveled at the fantastic work and productions of the students and their teachers.

“The commitment of everyone involved was clearly evident,” Hollomon said. “Each campus is providing students exceptional arts experiences directly tied to curriculum, instructional practices and artistic expression.

“As thespians, our students form a large budding Frisco ISD theatre community.”

Congratulations to all of the students who represented their schools in the competition, including those listed below that were spotlighted.
