Timber Creek Theatre’s UIL One-Act play, “Silent Sky,” has advanced once again and is now on to the regional competition.

“Silent Sky” advanced after an April 9, 2016 area competition and will next compete on April 20 at the region contest at UTA.

Multiple students won awards for their roles at the area competition: Caroline Norton won Best Actress, Austin Klopfenstein won an All-Star Cast Member award, Hannah Kersey won an Honorable Mention All-Star Cast award, and Jacob Galloway received Outstanding Technician.

“Silent Sky” will hold a FREE public performance in the Fine Arts Center on Friday, April 15 at 7 p.m.

Not only is Timber Creek the first school in North Texas to produce this play, this is the first ever time that Timber Creek Theatre has advanced this far.

The play is based on the story of a real-life 19th century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, who seeks to find a woman’s place in society during a time of vast scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas were ultimately disregarded until men took credit for them.

In addition to this years One-Act play, Timber Creek Theatre department was set to put on a fourth show toward the end of this year. However, according to Theatre Director Blake Wilson, the fourth show is “being postponed until next academic school year.” The original dates set aside for that show will be used instead for final class projects and in class activities.
