Mineral Wells Rotarians on Wednesday were entertained by scenes performed by Community Christian School's One-Act Play varsity ensemble as they and the school's junior varsity and junior high acting troupes prepare for this weekend's state championships taking place in Mineral Wells.


The Community Christian School Warrior Theater Department will compete in its seventh Texas Christian Athletic Fellowship State One-Act Play Contest on May 4th following recent wins at the TCAF District Three Contest.


CCS Administrator and One-Act Play Director Doug Jefferson brought the high school varsity OAP performers and technicians to Rotary to perform portions of their play, "Over The Tavern," part comedy and part drama written by Tom Dudzik and set during 1950s America.



In addition to “Over The Tavern,” the Warrior Theater Department’s junior varsity play, R.T. Robinson’s “Cover of Life,” was selected to go to state competition after earning second in District One competition two weeks ago. Jaylee Maness was D1 Best Actress as Sybil. Riggin Parker received First All-Star Cast as Tommy. Halle Barash was among the Second All-Star Cast selections and Kennady Richards was received Honorable Mention.


Both of the CCS One Act Plays will compete at the TCAF State One-Act Play Contest this Saturday, May 4, at the Weatherford College-Mineral Wells Education Center theater. Other schools competing in the state competition are Wylie Preparatory, UME Preparatory, Cornerstone McKinney and Westlake Academy. The plays will start at 1:30 p.m. Admission is $8 for adults, and $3 for children.


The CCS Junior High play, “Dorothy Meets Alice,” will be competing in the CSAF One-Act Play Finals on Friday after winning the District Three championship. The first play starts at 12:50 p.m.


Thank you to Doug and the CCS thespians for showing us some of your tremendous, award-winning talents and best of luck this weekend. Rotary also thanks Jefferson for making sure the championships are hosted in Mineral Wells, bringing a number of visitors to the city.
