El Paso ISD Schools Advancing to area One-Act Play Competition

The last two weeks has been nonstop for EPISD theatre students, competing and earning accolades at the UIL District and Bi-District 1-5A and 1-6A One-Act Play competitions.

Now three high schools will represent the District at the Area One-Act Play competition in Snyder, Texas on April 9.

Austin, Burges and El Paso high schools are advancing for their plays “These Shining Lives,” “Anna in the Tropics” and “Rabbit Hole,” respectively.

“I congratulate and commend all of our 10 high schools and their theatre companies for the marvelous presentations, and sincerely thank the directors for their hard work in instructing, encouraging, and developing our theatre students’ talents,” said Gail Manago, EPISD fine arts facilitator.

Students also earned best actor/actress categories and ensemble honors at both 5A and 6A levels.
