Telling the stories of the most storied place

Greetings from the Lone Star State

16 hours west of Oxford is the small town of Seminole, TX. Home to farmers, oil rig workers, teachers, and preachers. I’ll be here all week documenting the high school theatre department as the students prepare for the district One-Act play competition. This state-wide event is one of the largest theatrical competitions in the world boasting some 200,000 student participants from across the state with winners from each district advancing to regionals, area, and finally the state competition in Austin.

Seminole has qualified for state the last several years but has never won. I hope to document the story of these small-town kids with big-time dreams as they hope to make a name for themselves as actors.

Check back everyday this week as I talk about the day’s footage. Today’s theme was driving. 🙂
