One Act Play receives rave reviews
Denison High School's award-winning One-Act Play actors and actresses dazzled audiences one last time with last Wednesday's rollicking performance of the highly acclaimed comedy, "The Secret Affairs of Mildred Wild" at Eisenhower Auditorium. The local show followed stellar performances at UIL Zone and District Competition that earned the cast and crew the honor of Alternate to Area.

"Both cast and crew have turned in great performances at every level, earning awards at Zone and District contests."
The DHS production was awarded Alternate to Area Contest after competing at the recent District Meet at Grayson College. "We want to congratulate and commend this talented group of kids for the many hours of hard work they invested in this production. They were phenomenal," said Schielack. "We're very proud of each one of them…and the group as a whole. They worked so well together. It was a great production start to finish."
