August 2018
 
This past school year, we produced two fantastic shows in the fall.  We performed Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream in the early fall, followed by the musical Godspell, a retelling of the Book of Matthew through songs and parables.
 
Our UIL One Act Play was Dancing at Lughnasa, by Brian Friel.  There were 400+ 5A schools in the competition and this past spring, Wildcat Theatre finished in the top 20 plays of 5A.  At the district contest, All Star Cast awards were awarded to Tristan Westmoreland and Gordon Holmes, Delilah Whitehouse was awarded Honorable Mention All Star Cast, Abby Clarida received the Honorable Technician Award.  In addition, the technical crew from WHS was selected as Best Crew!  The members of that crew were Abby Clarida, Cyrus Mahdavi, Savannah Else, Eric Spaude and Alex Becraft.  
 
At Bi-District contest, Tristan Westmoreland received All Star Cast, Elizabeth Campbell and Tatum Carver-Dews received Honorable Mention All Star Cast and Savannah Else received the Honor Tech award.
 
On March 28, 2018, we competed in the area contest where Gordon Holmes and Elizabeth Campbell received All Star Cast awards, Tanner Garza and Tatum Carver-Dews received Honorable Mention All Star Cast and Abby Clarida received the Honor Tech award.
 
On April 13, 2018, the Regional Contest was held at San Jacinto College.  Tatum Carver-Dews and Gordon Holmes received All Star Cast awards, Delilah Whitehouse received an Honorable Mention All Star Cast and Savannah Else received the Honor Tech award.
 
This fall we plan to produce Cinderella.  However, giving full disclosure, we are not allowed to begin rehearsals until we have procured the rights.  So, as soon as budgets open, we will apply for the rights to this wonderful musical.  Additionally, we hope to produce Proof by David Auburn.
 
Many of our theatre troupe are also members of Thespian Troupe #296 of the International Thespian Society.  We hope to attend the State Convention the weekend before Thanksgiving.
