Theater Arts Department
Welcome to the award-winning Tuloso-Midway High School Theater Department!
Home of the 2021 UIL 4A One-Act Play STATE CHAMPIONS!
The TMHS Thespians proudly call the Dr. Sue Nelson Performing Arts Center home. The facility officially opened in the fall of 2014 and ever since then the multi-talented students and directors at Tuloso-Midway ISD continue to receive an abundance of success and awards. In 2015 the Tuloso-Midway High School UIL One-Act Play Company of These Shining Lives were named State Finalist in the UIL 5A One-Act Play State Contest, ending a 43 year school history streak by advancing to State!
The 2016 TMHS One-Act Play Company of The Caucasian Chalk Circle also advanced to State, with back to back State appearances. In 2018 the TMHS UIL One-Act Play Company of Moon Over Buffalo won the UIL 5A One-Act Play State Contest, crowning the company as STATE CHAMPIONS!
In the Fall of 2018 the TMHS Thespian Troupe #1075 was selected and invited to perform Mainstage at the annual Texas Thespian Festival with their massive musical production of The Little Shop of Horrors! The company performed to standing room only crowds, of which gave enthusiastic standing ovations!
The TMHS UIL One-Act Play company continued making State appearances, in 2019 the company of Lend Me Tenor earned a spot as a State Finalist and received 2nd Runner-Up in the 2019 UIL 5A One-Act Play State Contest. The 2020 UIL One-Act Play season was cut short due to COVID-19, although the TMHS UIL One-Act Play Company of Golden Boy did earn top honors as District Champions before the season ended abruptly.
The TMHS Thespians returned to the stage in 2021 and made a return back to the UIL State Contest. The TMHS UIL One-Act Play Company of Over The River And Through The Woods won the UIL 4A One-Act Play State Contest, crowning the company as STATE CHAMPIONS again!
The Tuloso-Midway High School Theatre Department continues to learn, grow and share their love and appreciation of the arts in education. Thank you to our wonderful and supportive TMISD School Board, Administration and Staff, to our friends and fans, to our families and to the entire coastal bend community!
