CCS One Act Play is STATE RUNNER-UP!

On November 11 and 12, Cypress Christian School’s One Act Play students competed in the TAPPS State One Act Play Competition in Kerrville, TX with their performance of “Peter and the Starcatcher ” by Rick Elise. Students worked diligently as a team and received State-Runner-Up (second place). Upon reviewing their scores with the TAPPS judges, students learned that one of the three judges gave them a state champion (first place) rating. This is a huge accomplishment and we hope you join us in celebrating their achievements.
