One Act Play - Vieux Carre

Lewisville High School will compete in the annual University Interscholastic League One-Act Play contest series with a production of Vieux Carré by revered American playwright Tennessee Williams.

One of Williams’ later and lesser-known works, this highly autobiographical play is set in a dilapidated boarding house in the French Quarter of New Orleans in the 1930s. It focuses on an unnamed writer from St. Louis who has moved to New Orleans while struggling with his literary career, poverty, loneliness, and homosexuality. He interacts with a collection of misfit and brash residents at the boarding house. Williams started the script in 1938 but did not finish it until 40 years later. The original Broadway production opened in 1977 and lasted just five performances; and yet, the poignant story it tells continues to engage and even haunt audiences today.

Schools open the One-Act Play competition at the Zone/District level and can advance through Bi-District, Area, and Region to the State contest held in Austin. Lewisville's competition schedule for Spring 2018 starts Thursday, March 8, at Lewisville High School.

25th Annual Putnam Co. Spelling Bee

This Tony Award-winning musical comedy features music and lyrics by William Finn, and is based on the book by Rachel Sheinkin. An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime in this quirky story. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life-unaffirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
