The Sulphur Springs High School Wildcat Theatre’s production of “Emma’s Child” advanced from UIL One Act Play District competition Tuesday to Bi-District with an excellent performance, according to Lesha Woodard, Director of Theatre.

Four members of the theatre group also earned individual awards for their outstanding contributions to the production.

Rachel Bramlett and Anthony Arroyo were awarded All-Star Cast. Chase Berry was awarded Honorable Mention All-Star Cast. Anayeli De La Cruz, stage manager for the production, was awarded Outstanding Crew Member.

Emma’s Child focuses on Jean and Henry Farrell, played by seniors Rachel Bramlett and Chase Berry. The Farrells, after years of unsuccessfully attempting to have a baby of their own, decide to adopt. Emma, portrayed by sophomore AllieGrace Woodard, is the birth mother who approves of the Farrells to adopt her child.

Then, they begin awaiting the birth of their child. When the time arrives, it is not a happy occasion, however, as baby boy Robin is born hydrocephalic and will not live long. Jean falls for this child anyway; the attention she pays to Robin not only threatens to tear her marriage apart, but causes trouble at the hospital as well. Her best friend Franny, played by junior Rorie Young, and some loving nurses, portrayed by juniors Anthony Arroyo and Hannah Shultz, help Jean as she deals with the ensuing problems.

Junior Haylee Fletcher and sophomores Emilie Gotcher, Caleb Talmage, and Lucy Braddy round out the cast.

SSHS Wildcat Theatre students will perform next at Bi-District competition on March 26 in Whitehouse.
