11-22-2019 Thankful for Theatre!
“I just loved being in the theatre with all those crazy, creative people.” —Kristin Davis
First, I would like to say thank you to each person that has helped and supported me in my first year at LHS. I’m so blessed and thankful to be here! Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
On November 9 and 10, the Lytle High School Theatre Department and Drama Club presented our full-length Fall production of Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling. Our cast and crew were comprised of 9 incredible young women; Camryn Hoffman, Celeste Perez, Jada Vega, Layla Rodriguez, Jocelyn Harris, Karizma Wroblewski, Jailynn Ng, Avery Patterson, and Ilana Solis. I was so proud of the hard work they put into their performances. I also want to celebrate my 2nd Period Technical Theatre class for their hard work on the set and props!
I hope you will take a moment to look at the photos from our Thursday, November 7 Steel Magnolias Dress Rehearsal here.
Before we head into Thanksgiving Break, I also wanted to announce our 2020 UIL One Act Play cast, crew, and alternates that will be bringing Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes to life this Spring:

Please mark your calendars for our community performance of The Little Foxes on March 28 at 7pm. I also plan to host an in-school performance for our students, as well. I will announce that date as soon as I have it!
I am very, very thankful for theatre this year.
