One-act wonders

Now, a word from the Woodrow drama department:

You are invited to the performance of Woodrow’s UIL One Act Play.  This production will take place Friday night, April 1.

The cast and crew have worked very hard, often putting in two hours of rehearsal after musical rehearsals are finished. The work they are doing is exceptional.

This is a district contest and the more support (i.e., audience) we have, the better.

Location: Conrad High School
When:  Friday, April 1
Time:  About 8 p.m., but arrive well before that
Admission:  Free

The way this contest works is: There are six plays from our district. The contest begins at 5 p.m. and each school performs their play in the following order: Bryan Adams, Conrad, Lincoln, Hillcrest, Woodrow, and Thomas Jefferson.

Each play is limited to 40 minutes, with seven minutes set up and tear down. Following the last performance, the judge will take some time to gather his thoughts before the awards ceremony following.

You do not have to stay for any other shows or the awards, you can come just to support Woodrow. You will NOT be allowed into the auditorium once a play has started.

Woodrow’s entry is a 1930s expressionistic anti-war play called “Bury the Dead.” It is not nearly the downer as the title makes it out to be!

It is a futuristic tale of several soldiers who have been killed in a war but stand up and refuse to be buried because of the things that they still have to do. It has some very funny moments and some moments that are quite moving.

Please come out and support these students and all of their hard work.
