Drama at high school centers around upcoming productions, director Allen

By LIBBY CLUETT | lcluett@mineralwellsindex.com

Like last year, there is lots of drama at Mineral Wells High School, and it kind of started over the summer, when Theater Director Kris Allen was awarded international recognition.

At the International Thespian Festival, in Lincoln, Neb., Allen was one of three directors worldwide this year to receive the organization’s Inspirational Theatre Educator Award.

“It is a really big deal and a huge honor for MWISD,” said theater supporter Beth Williams.

His Ram Thespian students nominated Allen, namely last year’s Troupe No. 4607 chapter president Mariah Lawhon.

Among other accomplishments, last year Allen led a talented company of students to University Interscholastic League regionals competition in Lubbock, where they were ranked 12th in the state.
