“Moon Over Buffalo” advances to bi-district
Paris, Texas, March 8, 2022 – On Saturday, March 5, 2022, the North Lamar High School One Act Play, scenes from “Moon Over Buffalo,” captured the championship at the UIL district 15-4A contest at Gilmer High School. The play is a comedy written by Ken Ludwig.
The UIL One-Act Play contest is a competition where schools of similar sizes present scenes from a play up to 40 minutes; the plays advance through a series of levels of competition from district to state. Three schools go to the next level until Regional, when only two schools move to the state contest.
In addition to winning the district championship, North Lamar brought home several individual acting awards. Jillian Jones and Joseph Daniel were named Best Performer, Richard Kelp-Torres, and Dylan Melvin received All-Star Cast awards. Also, Ann Vukcevich received the Honorable Mention All-Star Cast, and Cassie Coco received the Best Tech Award.
The company will move to the bi-district level on March 24, 2022, where they will compete against fellow District 15-4A competitors Liberty Eylau and Pleasant Grove and the top three plays from District 16-4A Lindale, Cumberland Academy, and Spring Hill.
Cody Head, Stephanie Easton, Brittany Smith, and Laura Hutchings directed the play.
