FHS One Act Play Regional Bound

FHS One Act Play is continuing their competition journey with sites set on making it to the state competition. This dream became a possibility when the students placed second at the Area competition held in Midland on Thursday, April 7.

FHS received a 2, 1, 2 putting them in the 2nd place spot. Rachel Biggs was honored with the Best Actress award. Jacob Salazar was named to the All-Star Cast and Anna Howard was named to the Honorable Mention All-Star Cast.

“We are going into what most directors would tell you is the hardest region in the state of Texas,” said Jake Lierman, FHS One Act Play Director. ” To be among the top in this region is saying enough, what is crazy is that we are right up there in the running to make it to Austin. I could not be more proud of these kids.”

This year’s show of All My Sons follows a family struggling with a father’s mistakes. The family searches for the truth not realizing how bad the truth would hurt. Joe Keller, played by Salazar, owned a manufacturing company that shipped out faulty airplane parts during World War II. Blaming his business partner he was released from jail. The show follows the family as the real truth begins to reveal itself.

The students will be traveling to the University of Texas in Arlington to compete in the Regional competition on April 20.
