March 25, 2021


Four Dripping Springs High School theatre students earned honors at the One-Act Play bi-district competition on Wednesday, March 24, at Rouse High School in Leander.


Senior Rory Schaeffer-Preston and junior Ben Muscanere were named to the All-Star Cast, while senior Colton Carroll was selected as an Honorable Mention Actor. Best Technician went to sophomore Kinsey Silcox.


The DSHS production of “Woyzeck” claimed the District 26-5A OAP competition earlier in March and was named a regional alternate at the bi-district contest. 


At the district competition, five students earned individual honors for their performances. Schaeffer-Preston, Carroll and Muscanere were named to the All-Star Cast while junior Alyssa Nimocks received honorable mention on the All-Star Cast. Lastly, senior Lila Robbins was named Best Technician.


The UIL One-Act Play contest is a competition where similarly sized Texas schools present an 18-40 minute play and may be adjudicated by a panel of three judges or a single judge. At each level of competition, a judge awards individual acting awards as well as selecting three productions to advance to the next level of competition up to the regional level where only two will advance to the state competition.
