Goliad High School is hosting a clinic Feb. 18 to help area schools prepare for UIL District One Act Play competition.
Attending this clinic are students from Odem, Aransas Pass, London and Goliad.
“Theatre troops will be practicing their shows in front of a clinician to get ideas on how to improve their performances,” said Dr. Kathryn Thomas, with Goliad High School.
Clinician for the event is Kelly Russell from Texas A&M Corpus Christi.
Russell heads the Theatre Education Program at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. He also serves as the Director of TAMUCC Summer Theatre Workshop: Camp on the Coast.
Russell has been honored with four A&M Chancellor’s Awards for Teaching Excellence and is a past president of the Texas Educational Theatre Association. He was named the TETA University Educator of the Year in 2012, and recently received the TAMUCC SAMC Award for Creative Activity. Prior to arriving at TAMUCC, Russell taught in various Texas high schools and directed four one-act plays which placed first and second at the UIL State Meet.
He holds a BFA in Acting from Texas State University and an MFA in Directing from Baylor.
