“Please do this show again and again and again!” Critic judge Ricky Ramon’s written ballot praised Mason High School’s performance of scenes from “The Last Night of Ballyhoo” at the District 29-1A One Act Play, Zone 1 contest on March 21 at Llano HS. The production advanced to District competition to be held next week in Kerrville.
Senior, Claudia Canfield was awarded Best Actress while freshman, Jackson Chapman was named Best Actor. All Star Cast included James Perlichek, Steeley Smith and Cassie Benefield. Honorable Mention went to Sara Powell and Elliot Bibb. An All Star Crew medal was given to Kendra Klaerner for her work in the light booth. Other members of the winning cast and crew are Spencer Bierschwale, Jordan Standard, Carlos Chavez and Mady Glentz.
MHS will compete on Friday, March 28, 2014 at Tivy High School in Kerrville. Plays begin at 1:00 p.m. and run back to back. Shows generally run 35-40 minutes with 14 minutes between for strike and set. Brackett will begin the day’s performances, followed by San Antonio Stacey, Center Point, Junction, MASON and Nueces Canyon. Two plays will advance to Area competition. It is estimated that Mason will take the stage at 4:15, but supporters may want to arrive earlier as start times depend on the length of set, performance and strike time used by each school.
The cast and crew would like to thank Country Collectibles, The Petal Patch, Glen Treibs, Sheri Jordan, Fredericksburg and Lometa High Schools, Mike Brown, Mason Monograms and More, Cindy Morris and the administration of Mason High School for supporting theatre in our school.
