Panola College theatre students took their show on the road to Texas A&M University Commerce on February 28 through March 3 to compete in the Texas Community College Speech & Theatre Association competition. The cast and crew of “Vinegar Tom” brought home awards for acting and technical theatre.

The Professors Excellence Awards went to Jesse Waters, sound; Kassandra Escobar, lighting design; Kacie Sepulvado, scenic design, Cody Osburn, tree design; Zach Holmes, tour management; Zach Holmes, construction lead.

Maelbi Calderon won a Respondents Excellence Award for stage management. Kacie Sepulvado won a Respondents Superior Tech Award for property design.

Ten Panola College students won Professors Superior Awards, including Nikki Lawhorn, dramaturgy; Maelbi Calderon, stage management; Nikki Lawhorn, transition coordinator; Taylor Foster, lobby display; Taylor Foster, program design; Lacie Sepulvado, costume design; Emmalee Tomaszweski, choreography; Maelbi Calderon, assistant dramaturgy; Jasmine Ryan, make-up and hair design; and Kacie Sepulvado, property design.

Tying for the Professors Acting Award were Emmalee Tomaszweski and Katyln Smith.

“Vinegar Tom,” by Caryl Churchill, examines the role of women in society during the seventeenth century witch hunt era in England.

“I am pleased with the abundance of individual awards our students brought home from TCCSTA,” said Karen King, drama professor. “The adult subject matter of this play made it especially challenging and our students rose to the task in grand fashion.”
