Recently at the Haltom City Carfest, Julie Orebaugh, Haltom City community projects manager, presented a certificate to the Haltom High band along with a promised donation of $2,000 to help meet the band’s financial needs. Orebaugh said, “I’m so happy to give the $2,000 donation because you and your band have been so generous with your time for city events and functions. It’s a token of our appreciation, and the City wants to support your program and the impact the arts have on the students of Haltom City.” The Haltom High band has become a regular participant in Christmas on Broadway, Carfest, art shows, the Haltom City Fire/Rescue Banquet and other community events.
Congratulations to Dell Stevens and Dylan Walker, both Haltom High School students, for winning the Circle Theatre Playwriting Contest. (More than 100 plays are submitted annually.) Dylan’s play, “Lovers on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown,” is one of four finalists who will have a professional play reading at Circle Theatre on May 7 at 3 p.m. The event is open to the public and is free. Dell’s play, “Man of Three Shadows,” is one of five semi-finalists. Both writers will receive cash prizes, tickets to an area theatre, and time to visit with producers, directors and actors. Dylan will have a scholarship from Texas Wesleyan Theatre waiting for him upon graduation. Haltom Theatre will have a staged reading in May to honor these students and their success. Dylan and Dell join a long line of successful playwrights from Haltom High School. Students study playwriting in Theatre II each year.
