REV: ITM, Wimberley at Regionals!

Ingram Tom Moore High School’s One-Act Play competition piece, an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, along with Wimberley High School’s version of The History of Tom Jones, based on the novel by Henry Fielding, won the Area One-Act Play competition Thursday and advanced to the Regional finals. That last competition prior to the State Championship meet will be at Texas A&M University-Kingsville this Friday, April 11, beginning with ITM’s play at 1:00 p.m.

LaVernia's Mariner was also excellent and was named alternate play. Interestingly, Wimberley and ITM are the same two schools which advanced from District 25-3A. The other schools competing at Area were Cuero High School,with Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, Susan Zeder’s Do Not Go Gentle presented by Marion High School, and Charlie’s Aunt by Brandon Thomas staged by Palacios High School.

Ingram’s Lindsey Morris (Cesario/Viola) was named Best Actress at Area, joining LaVernia’s Brandon Turner as Best Actor. Ingram received All-Star Cast nods for Shana Baldwin (Fabian) and Madelyn Beaudoin (Sir Andrew Aguecheek), and an Honorable Mention All-Star Cast for Kylie Nidever (Maria).

Those who would like to see the show are encouraged to arrive early as the doors close at showtime and folks are not allowed late entry. Five more shows follow for the same admission price. In addition to Ingram and Wimberley, other Regional competitor schools include Crystal City, Medina Valley, Falfurrias and Zapata High Schools.
