Breckenridge High School’s One-Act Play ensemble will compete in the Bi-District UIL competition next week in Graham, after advancing in the District contest last week with their production of “Mrs. Packard.”

The cast and crew earned the second place award at the District competition on March 5, which means they advance into the next level of competition, the Bi-District contest, scheduled for Friday, March 22, also in Graham.

In addition to winning the second place trophy, the Buckaroos also received the following individual awards at District:

  • All Star Cast: Cole Morton and Zaea Ragle
  • Best Lights: Alyssa Contreras
  • Honorable Mention All Star Cast: Haley Graham

At the Zone competition in Graham on Feb. 27, several cast and crew members received individual awards and the ensemble advanced to the District contest:

  • Best Stage Manager: Tori Gotschall
  • Best Performer: Zaea Ragle
  • All Star Cast: Haley Graham and Zoey Cotter
  • Honorable Mention All Star Cast: Reyse Hash, Cole Morton and Morgan Duncan

The play, written by award-winning director and playwright Emily Mann, is based on the true story of Elizabeth Packard, who without proof of insanity was committed by her husband to an asylum in 1860. Three years later, she was released, and then in 1864, Mrs. Packard successfully defended her sanity in a trial. She went on to campaign for laws in Illinois and other states that would ensure the rights of those in mental health hospitals and improve the rights of married women.
