Robert E. Lee Students Take Play to Regionals


It seems like each time these students perform the play, the win awards and just keep advancing.

On April 11 at the area competition, Robert E. Lee students Ashten Lane and Sarah Johnson won Honorable Mention All Star Cast, Nytesia Ross was named to the All Star Cast, Maddie Smith earned Best Actress, Jake Spadie was named Best Actor, and Kathleen Schmidt was named Best Tech. Wow!

This weekend, the Robert E. Lee Theater Department takes the play, “These Shining Lives,” to Baylor University for the regional competition.

The Tyler Morning Telegraph offers this description of the play:

Set in 1920s America, the play focuses on four women who have received the rare opportunity to work outside their home. The job is at Radium Dial where they paint numbers onto watch faces. Despite constant assurances from management, the women begin experiencing the effects of poisoning from the radium contained in the paint. It is not until years later when a doctor is finally willing to put his reputation on the line that the women are able to make progress in taking action against the company.

If the Robert E. Lee theater team can place in the top two tomorrow at Baylor, then it’s on to the state competition. Good luck!
