Sulphur Springs High School Designer Headed To State For Fourth Consecutive Year

A Sulphur Springs High School designer is once again headed to the state UIL competition. This year, AllieGrace Woodard has qualified to advance in two UIL theatrical design categories- Hair and Makeup, and Costumes contests. Both are areas she continues to shine in, SSHS reported Thursday evening.

This year will be her fourth consecutive year Woodard has advance to state in theater design categories.

In 2019, the high school designer competed at state in hair and makeup design but did not rank high enough to earn a medal.

She was was recognized in 2020 as state theater design finalist with her sustainable, time-traveling designs for Pedro Calderon De La Barca’s “Life is a Dream.” AllieGrace’s state-advancing hair and makeup entry featured Rachel Bramlett, Chase Berry, and Hannah Shultz as models. Overall, she finished 6th place in 2020 in the State Theatrical Design–Division II Costume and Makeup contest.

As a junior, Woodard was named the 2021 State Champion in the UIL Theater Design Hair and Make-up Contest, earned Honorable Mention All Star Cast recognition  at the Bi-District competition in 2021, and directed a student film that advanced to the second round of judging in the UIL Film competition. Woodard also placed third in poetry interpretation at the District UIL meet in 2021.

The 2022 senior will be defending her title in May, advancing to state again in both competitions. (See samples of her work below).
