Dripping Springs actors honored

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

Woyzeck is a stage play written by Georg Büchner. He left the work incomplete at his death, but it has been posthumously “finished” by a variety of authors, editors and translators. Woyzeck deals with the dehumanising effects of doctors and the military on a young man’s life.

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.

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.
