Alice! completed its competition run Friday, April 7th, during the University Interscholastic League (UIL) One Act Regional Competition at Southwest High School in San Antonio, finishing 5th in the Regional competition, and in the top 20 in the State.
“No, we didn’t make it to State but the kids had an incredible run and they have a lot to be proud of,” said Theatre Director, Jon Clark. “It is almost unheard of for so many different cast and crew members to be awarded during one UIL season. That really drives home the point that this was an ensemble show. We weren’t relying on our two best actors to get us this far. It was truly a team effort.”
Alice! finished in the top 20 out of 270 competing schools. Through four UIL contests, 11 of the 15 MFHS cast members received acting awards. Four out of five technicians received All-Star Tech awards. Following the Regional performance, the Alice! cast learned that three of their ensemble members earned individual awards:
The Alice! cast will deliver an encore performance to the general public on Saturday, April 22nd, at 7 p.m. in the MFHS Auditorium. Everyone is welcome to come and experience the magic before Alice! returns to the rabbit hole! Tickets are $5.00 at the door.
