After a successful weekend at the Texas Thespians Festival in Dallas, 27 Clear Creek ISD students across all five comprehensive high schools have qualified for Thespian Nationals this summer. The festival was a three-day event filled with contests, workshops and performances intended to honor the best in high school theatre from across the state.

One feature of the festival is adjudicated competitions in acting, musical and technical individual events. The students compete against the ballot to earn advancement to Thespian Nationals. To qualify, the students must receive an overall ranking of “Superior” from all three judges. This year, there were over 1,500 individual event entries from across the state and less than one-third of the students qualified for Nationals.

The 27 students who qualified in their event for Nationals are as follows:

Additionally, students from the Clear Creek High School Improv Troupe competed in the new, Texas-only tournament-style Improvisation Challenge. Forty-six schools entered the tournament and the Clear Creek team advanced to the Semi-finals round and earned the distinction of being third place in the state. Technical Theatre students from Clear Falls High School also placed third in the state out of seventy-seven competing schools in the Texas-only Tech Challenge. This event tests a team of students on individual and team skills that every technician needs to successfully run a production with speed and efficiency.

We are proud of the accomplishments of these students, and especially proud of the way they represented CCISD at the competition. “The students supported other schools in their performances, displayed good sportsmanship, and took advantage of the myriad of opportunities they had to learn from Theatre educators from around the state and country,” said Clear Creek High School Theatre Director Bradley Hewlett.
