McMichael brings home one-act play top honors

McMichael Middle School UIL One-Act Play cast, crew, and directors won first place overall along with six individual awards at the District One-Act Play competition held Feb. 13 at Lindale High School Performing Arts Center. The win is the second straight for the ensemble, which also brought home the championship in 2020.

Nacogdoches ISD swept the top spots of the competition. Mike Moses Middle School finished second overall, followed by third place Whitehouse Junior High.

McMichael’s Ja’Brandon Chatman and Jordan Suggs took the two awards given for Best Performers. Malachi Anderson and Jacob Norman received All-Star Cast. Zoey Hutchens received Honorable Mention All-Star Cast, and Natalie Reyes received Honorable Mention Technician.

The production was directed by McMichael teachers Megan Johnson and Lauren Bueno. The 21-member team of actors and technician crew members performed Peter Bloedel’s comedy, “The Hallmarks of Horror,” a whirlwind tour through the common mainstays of both the creepy and scary. 

“I was so excited when I read this script, to see this show and you all did not disappoint,” said competition judge Laurie Durrett. “What a fun ride – so many talented actors.”

“This was a joy to watch. Great energy, said judge Michael Ward. “The actors really sold it – very good ensemble all working together.,”

McMichael Middle School will perform the play again at 7 p.m., March 25, at Nacogdoches High School. The performance is free to the public; however, there is limited seating due to COVID-19 restrictions.
