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.
WC’s production of The 39 Steps, directed by Nancy McVean, received an overall Superior rating, and Superior Acting Awards went to Kristen Walker and Matthew Myers. Myers also garnered the most prestigious of recognitions at the festival, having been recognized as the Best Overall Actor.
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!!
