The Bush Theatrical Ensemble has done it again. They have placed 1st runner up at state, with scenes from “In The Blood” in the UIL  6A One Act Play contest. It has been a long journey with the cast and crew putting in so much work. The cast and crew have been under tremendous pressure to continue the legacy, previously haven been to state receiving 1st runner for the past two years.

“The biggest pressure was not failing under the ‘we have to win this year’. The pressure we had to go to State doubled. I believe the hardest part was not folding under those circumstances,” said junior, Abdullah Naser

The cast and crew of “In the Blood” competed in 4 UIL rounds to reach state. At the 3rd competition, region, junior Anthony Duran received the best technician award. He was the first person in 6A UIL theater competition to receive this award.

“Receiving the first technician award has been such an honor for me. It is a very exhilarating feeling that I can hardly put into words. The biggest highlight of this process for me is when the lights go down, and we hear the audience applaud,” said junior, Anthony Duran.

“In the Blood” is a powerful story that reflects the hypocrisy of society. It has touched the lives of many people, and will continue to live in the hearts of everyone in the cast and crew.

“I experienced the pressure of telling the most raw, unapologetic story possible. We wanted to get the story right, so that was the focus. The biggest highlight for me is realizing that my art is recognized. For the third consecutive year Bush Theatrical Ensemble has been successful in the One Act Play contest. We don’t do it for the advancement, but for the art,” sophomore, Jordan Okeke

“In the Blood” will be having it’s last performance on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at 7:00 pm.
