The Waxahachie High School One Act Play cast and crew continue to advance through the UIL competitions in hopes of a state bid. Saturday, April 14, they are slated to perform as the third of six schools that qualified for the regional competition being held at Texas Hall on the University of Texas at Arlington campus. Judges will select the top two performances to move on to the state championship. People wanting to attend the regional competition are encouraged to arrive early to be seated, with the first school performing at 2 p.m. To ensure a seat at the WHS play, arrive no later than 3:30 p.m. as no one is admitted into the hall when performances are under way. WHS theater lovers are encouraged to attend and show their support for the cast and crew in their first year of 6A competition. This year’s one-act play is “The Runner Stumbles,” which is based on Milan Stitt’s Broadway play, which was also turned into a film directed and produced by Stanley Kramer. The story line stems from an August 1907 murder of a nun, who was rumored to have had an affair with a parish priest.
