WebmasterFine Arts News, High School News


FHS UIL One Act Play The Grapes of Wrath advanced to the Regional UIL One Act Play contest Saturday, April 9, 2016.

In a very good day of performances by 6 schools FHS came out on top and will compete at Regionals on Saturday April 23 at San Jacinto College Central Campus.

Friendswood took home the honors of:
Best Actress  – Senior Madeline Rhew
Best Actor –  Senior Bodie Lowe
Honorable Mention All Star Cast – Senior  Francis Sandridge
Best Tech was indeed earned by Meredith Fraga who saved the show when the site crew’s light board overheated and malfunctioned.  Meredith ran the 40 + cues manually.
From the banjos to the scorched look of the set the judges were amazed by the ensemble and the vocal execution of the actors.

The play , SF The Grapes of Wrath is directed by Kathy Powdrell.
