Following a long-standing precedent, the Weatherford College drama department once again has returned from the recent annual Texas Community College Theatre Festivalwith a truck-load of awards and honors.

Elysia Worcester and Allen Dean each earned Excellent actor ratings. Marcus Lopez was awarded a Superior in costume design, and Ryan Patterson won a Superior in sound.
“Additionally,” said McVean. “We all had a super good time, made friends, learned a lot, and we were so happy; we won practically every award they had. One of the judges, Terry Lewis from Texas A&M – Commerce told me afterwards that we have one of the best drama departments in the state! I really enjoyed hearing that!”
Other colleges attending the festival, which was hosted by Texas A&M – Commerce, were Tomball; Lone Star – Kingwood; Houston Community College; Blinn; Howard, Wharton and Panola. Each of the participating colleges performed for a panel of judges, and competed for a variety of awards and special recognitions.
“And now on to the next big production,” said McVean. “Stay tuned for To Kill a Mockingbird! It has been cast with a combination of community residents and college students, and they are all wonderful!!
