Crew members Karina Sotelo and Taryn Morman work on hair and makeup for junior Brittnie Garcia.

Buffalo hosted the District One Act Play competition on March 25, and when all was said and done the Buffalo Theatre Company’s performance of The Children’s Hour advanced. Also advancing from District 21-AAA were Leon and Crockett.

“In the past month we’ve tried to raise the energy level during rehearsals as high as possible, and we hope to continue that to help our chances at Bi-district,” OAP Director Jill Henson said. “I’m really proud of the dedication my students are showing. I hope we continue to represent Buffalo well.”

Kayla Hutchins was named Best Actress. Erykah Anderson received All-Star Cast and Katelyn Cannon Honorable Mention All-Star Cast. The All-Star Crew Award went to Lauren Helmcamp.

“It was so exciting to have my name called for Best Actress, but it was even more exciting to be called as advancing show,” Hutchins said. “It’s good to know that our hard work is paying off.”

Buffalo will be competing on Monday, April 6th in Huntsville at the Bi-District competition against Leon, Crockett, Woodville, Hemphill, and Central Heights. The top three plays will advance to Area in Houston April 17-18.
