The cast, crew and directors of “Dark Road” will be taking their OAP troupe on the road to the state meet for their next performance on April 20 at Bastrop ISD, just south of Austin. Advancing play members include lead director Aimee Fields, junior Jamey Germany, senior Leslie Germany, sophomore Matthew Bowen, senior Charity Perry, junior Chelsey Lamb, sophomore K’Leigh Keesee, freshman Justina Coronado, freshman Ginna Miller, sophomore Madison Friemel, freshman Kaylie Ritter, junior Lauren Kuehler, junior Morgan Trevino, freshman Laurel Fields, assistant director Lisa Roskens, senior Garet Rocha, sophomore Cutter Babcock, freshman Cade Linquist, sophomore Corbin Ruthardt, senior Mason Miller, senior Jeff Marshall and junior Chandler LaRoe.

Parents and other fans will need to have cash on hand to purchase tickets for the state performance on April 20. The tickets will be $14 for adults and $12 for students. Those purchases will have to made with cash when the Bastrop Independent School District Performing Arts Center opens at 3 p.m. on the date of the performance; no checks or cards will be accepted from individuals, according to UIL theatre director Luis Muñoz.

Groom is scheduled to give its final competitive performance at 4 p.m. that day at the Bastrop PAC, which is just south of Austin. On Saturday, April 8, the cast and crew earned their shot to compete at the state meet.

In addition, the group earned several awards, including these listed in this Saturday, April 8 Facebook post.













The entire troupe received many accolades on social media for the accomplishment, including this one from the creator of the play, “Dark Road,” Laure Lundgren Smith.











For those interested in attending the state performance, tickets will not go on sale before April 20. Groom is slated to perform at 4 p.m., and the Bastrop PAC will open at 3 p.m. for ticket sales.





The auditorium has plenty of room, so getting a seat should not be a problem. Since Groom performs first, though, fans will want to be in line when the ticket office opens. Some additional information on the state meet follows.

Throughout the long day of qualifying, the cast, crew and directors said they were “most blessed” by the “state-bound” banner, complete with glow-in-the-dark balloons, that waited to greet them at their midnight return time to the team’s usual unloading spot on the west end of school.
