This evening, Matthew Graves of the Southern Documentary Project will screen his new film Bury the Show at Seminole High School in Seminole, Texas at 7pm. Bury the Show follows the cast and crew of the Seminole, Texas high school theatre team and their quest to be the first team in school history to win the state theatre championship.
Every year, thousands of high school theatre programs across Texas compete in the state’s One Act Play tournament. It’s a five month journey of late night rehearsals, long bus rides, and moments of pure joy and sheer terror all leading up to the opportunity to perform at the State Tournament in Austin. It’s a place where dreams are made and crushed within a single spotlight.
Check out a trailer below. We’ll keep you updated on future screenings of this and other SouthDocs films.
