This Friday, December 9th, the MFHS Theatre department will host its inaugural Thespian Showcase. Admission is free. In addition to the opportunity to enjoy the MFHS thespians’ National Qualifying performances, attendees of the event will be offered the opportunity to speak to the technical theatre contestants and view their designs in the lobby of the MFHS Auditorium. Beginning at 7 p.m., the National Qualifying performance contestants will present their group and duet scenes followed by the play marathon show Tribes, by Nina Raine. There will not be an intermission.
The MFHS Thespians competed in the Texas Thespian Festival last weekend in Dallas. Every student in attendance participated in either group design events, Individual Events, or in the performance of the play, Tribes.
Of the 25 MFHS students competing in Individual Events, 12 were ranked as Superior by their panel of judges, which qualifies them for the National competition this summer in Nebraska. Along with each student competing, Marble Falls Theatre performed their winter show, Tribes, at the Play Marathon venue. This is the first time for MFHS Theatre to take a show to the Texas Thespian event. The show was given a rating of Excellent by the panel of adjudicators.
