Dr. Ivins part of historic panel of judges

Dr. Jerry Ivins, artistic director of the Central Campus’ department of theatre and film, will be a judge at the upcoming University Interscholastic League state high school one-act play competition.

“This year will be first time there will be a panel of judges at the State competition,” he commented. “I have been asked to be a part of this historic first panel.”

The UIL state one-act play competition, held in Austin, is billed as the largest high school play production contest in the world. More than 14,000 Texas high school students in more than 1,000 plays will participate in 300 plus contests, which take place from the beginning of March through the three-day, 40-production state meet one-act play contest.

“It continues to be a major factor motivating increasing numbers of schools to offer theatre arts as an academic subject,” Ivins said.

Congratulations to Dr. Ivins for being selected to participate in such a prestigious and important endeavor.
