After winning at district with their one act play “Reckless,” the Creek theater department advanced to UIL bi-district, where they did not advance.

Junior Allison Lindsey, who won the award for Best Technician at district because of her role as the production’s light designer, said she loves to see how all the little pieces of a show come together in the end.

“I fell in love with [theater] in middle school,” Lindsey said. “I’ve done light design since my freshman year. I kinda got like thrown into it my first show, and I’ve just loved it ever since.”

Lindsey said she typically does not feel nervous, but at district she started feeling the pressure.

“The nerves hit me at district, but at zone I was fine because I usually have all my stuff together and I know what I need to do,” Lindsey said. “But for district, it’s a higher up competition so I have to be better at my job. The nerves kind of progress as you get higher.”

Neal Gage, a new director for the department, directed “Reckless,” and Lindsey said the cast enjoys working with the new directors.

“All of us have absolutely loved them and love what they’ve done to the program because they’ve taken us to a new level,” Lindsey said. “We all really like them and it’s going well.”
