Texas High School Theatrical Design Team Finishes Fourth in State Competition

Texarkana, TX – Texas High School's Theatrical Design Team finished their year by earning Fourth Place in the UIL Division II State contest which was held April 23-26 in Round Rock, Texas.

The team was judged by Kevin Rigdon, Tony Award nominee for Scene Design and current Scenic & Lighting Design Professor at the University of Houston.

Members of the state team were: Paisley Allen, Blaire Berry, Drew Martindale and Olivia Parks.

Each member school in Texas is allowed to enter one group entry portfolio based upon the theatrical design directorial prompt given by the UIL. The portfolio must have a unified design concept focusing on set design, costume design, hair/makeup design and marketing design. This year’s show selection was a special repertory exercise to connect two plays together to say something to those who witness them. Selected shows were A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry and Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris.

Trent Hanna, Technical Director for TISD, serves as teacher/coach to the team.
