Keller High School’s One Act Play team performed at the regional competition last week in Lubbock, with the cast earning some individual awards.

Indian Theatre One-Act Play director Sara Zinck said the company gave its best performance of the year, despite not advancing to the state championship. Just two productions from each region—eight total—advance to state in the contest sponsored by the University Interscholastic League. Keller won the state One-Act Play contest in 2010.

This year’s production, “Bob,” is a poignant comedy about a man born and abandoned in the bathroom of a White Castle restaurant who embarks on a lifelong quest to become “a great man.”

At the regional contest, Jake Blakeman, playing the title character, was named to the All-Star Cast. Brooke Nelson received Honorable Mention All-Star Cast.

Blakeman also received an All-Star Cast award at the area contest on April 12 in Flower Mound. McKenna Booth was named Honorable Mention All- Star Cast and Kathleen Slifka was named Outstanding Technician.

Other members of the company are Olivia Cappelli, Gretchen Clark, Nick Connolly, Garrett Cook, Alyssa Coonan, Drew Duffy, David Fait, Katie Howrey, Clare Keating, Micah Knupp, Katelynn Kutiper, Grayson Merchant, Sarah White and Meagan Yates

The Indian Theatre Company will give a performance of “Bob” for the community at 7 p.m. April 25 in the Fine Arts Center at Keller High School, 601 N. Pate Orr Rd. Admission is $5.
