Last Saturday, Splendora Junior High (SJH) theater students brought home some hardware from the One-Act Play competition. Performing The Actor's Nightmare by Christopher Durang at their home theater, the students came away with second place, but also a whole slew of awards. Dylan Cain received Best Performer; Giovanni Tovar and Raegan Lock received All Star; Makenzie Shores, Erin Harris, and Kim Day received Outstanding Tech Crew; Kim Day also received Outstanding Crew Member; and Kayla Atkinson, Haily Haney, and Rylee Lock received Honorable Mention.
The Actor's Nightmare is a short comic play involving an accountant named George Spelvin, who is mistaken for an actor's understudy and forced to perform in a play for which he doesn't know any of the lines. SJH Theater Director Brittney Hudson said, “They did a fantastic job! They worked very hard and it paid off. Mrs. Nguyen and I are very proud of them!”
