I think it is safe to say that this UIL season has been jam packed with eventful and impactful shows! All across Texas for the past semester, students like you and me have been working tirelessly to put on these excellent productions, and have achieved many great things for our communities. Each STO would like to congratulate every thespian who participated in this UIL season on making such great art and devoting yourself to your craft. Thank you for putting on such great theatre!
On a similar note, congratulations to all our state qualifiers! Your work definelity does not go unnoticed, and we appreciate each and every single cast member, crew member, administrator, and director who has put so much time and effort into these shows. Break a leg at state and represent Texas proud!
If your show did not advance to state, never fret! The fact that you were able to put on a show and impact those around you in the first place is a feat in itself, and something to be very proud of! All art is excellent art if it makes you think, brings awareness to a topic, or reaches out to someone who needs it. UIL is a competition, but is also a celebration! Let's celebrate each other and the excellent community of artists we are a part of!
With so much love,
Your 2021 Texas State Thespian Officers
