Katy Visual and Performing Arts Center (KVPAC) Encore Players, Katy’s award winning community theatre, won the Biennial Quad IV Southeast Texas competition at the American Association of Community Theatre (AACT) February 4th. KVPAC is competing with the one act play, Answers, by Tom Topor and will be in Lewisville for Texas AACTFest 2017 for the State competition March 15 – 18.
In 2015, KVPAC Encore Players won first place at the Quad IV Southeast Texas competition and in the Texas state competition and represented Texas in the Regional competition (Texas, Arkansas, New Mexico and Louisiana), winning second place.
Gregory J. Magyar, KVPAC’s Executive Artistic Director who was in the show that won in 2015 and received an ‘All Star Cast’ award is returning this year with Trenton Stephenson and James Duncan under the direction of Joshua Schorejs, a director and teacher at KVPAC, who won the Excellence in Directing Award in 2015.
Answers is a short one act play about a man (James Duncan) having been detained for questioning, in a crime about which he claims to know nothing, is grilled by two persistent police officers (Gregory Magyar and Trenton Stephenson). They call him "Byron" (although he insists this is not his name) and their initially bantering attitude turns steadily more ominous as they attempt to force a confession. Ultimately, in a scene of shattering intensity, they succeed—but disturbing questions linger. Have justice and truth indeed been served? Or has another hapless victim been sacrificed to society's inexorable need for retribution at any cost?
