The group's performance of "Unexpected Tenderness" touched a chord with judges in the 2011 season, sending the Dana Naughton-directed group from Zone to District to Area and, for the first time in district history for a local play, Region competition. Acting up Hays One Act reaches Region, Lehman wins honors BY JIM CULLEN nnual high school UIL e Act Play competition ays brings out the best in local theatrical talent and this year's offerings from Hays and Lehman high schools were no exception. Both schools drew honors at opening Zone competition, with Hays taking center stage for a heady climb up the competition ladder. Hays High School's One Act Play, "Unexpected Tenderness," startled its audiences with its sobering portrayal of a dys- functional family struggling to deal with physical and verbal abuse. It was, at points, a dif- ficult play to watch, but there was no difficulty in recognizing the efforts of Director Dana Naughton's award-winning cast and crew. As a result, the 2011 offering has made Hays CISD history for its run in competi- tion. No local high school One Act Play had ever reached the Region level of UIL competi- tion, the final hurdle on the way to State. It's a remarkable fact, considering the long- recognized, consistent qual- ity of the annual efforts from both schools. But Naughton's charges did it, with honors spread throughout the cast and crew at every level along the way. They didn't advance to State from the San Antonio regionals, but there was plenty to celebrate. "I could not be more proud," Naughton said, with good cause. Hannah Hadidi received All Star Cast honors at Region and an Honorable Mention All Star Cast slot went to Sarah Martin, with crew member Madeline Harsch drawing Best Techni- cian honors, tat the earlier Area level, held in Bastrop, Ava L'Amoreaux was honored with All Star Cast, Luke Leamons and Robert Riley received Hon- orable Mention All Star Cast, Mercedes Salazar was named Best Technician, and the hill crew of Salazar, Colby Padgett, Abraham Hernandez, Emily Knight Hunter, and Madeline Harsch were tabbed Best Tech Crew. Compleme, nting those honors were earlier awards at both Distri(ct and initial Zone compel, iron. At District, Ava L'Amoreaux claimed Best Actress honors, Luke Leamons and Robert Riley landed All Star Cast, and Zackary Garcia and Sarah Martin were Honorable Mention All Star Cast. Leamons had earlier taken Best Actor honors at Zone, L'Amoreaux and Riley were on the All Star Cast, and Garcia and Martin were Honorable Mention All Star Cast. Director Naughton called her cast and crew's Region performance "without a doubt, the best performance we had," leaving no regrets about the final competition performance.

The drama continued over an additional two days as the district's middle school choir pro- ag[llams demonstrated from where that talent will be coming in years to come. Lobo Director DanielArredondo - himself a hometown product of the program and, in fact, a former student of Hays Director Nancy Cavendish- perhaps had the most to relish for his choral students in this year's annual test of Concert and Sightreading. Lehman swept four Sweepstakes trophies in four tries, two in varsity competition and two in non-varsity. All four were with perfect strings of six judges' first division ratings. Hays High performed with three groups, celebrating a per- fect set of six judges' first divisions for their Varsity Treble Choir, win- ning Sweepstakes, as well as a first division in Sightreading for the Varsity Mixed Chorus and a Sweepstakes for their Non-varsity Treble Choir. Poignantly adding to the post-competition emo- tions was Director Nancy Caven- dish's announcement of her com- ing retirement. In the middle school competi- tion that completed the week of beautiful local sounds emanating from the PAC, Dahlstrom fielded a pair of Sweepstakes entries, Director Tanna Bills guiding var- sity and non-varsity groups to gold. Both Wallace, under Kelley Reyes, and Barton, under Kath- erine Moore, fielded varsity treble choirs that added to the Sweep- stakes haul. At both Chapa and Simon, choirs celebrated a Sight- reading first division under di- rectors Adam Poynor and Adrian Reyes, respectively.
