Press release

Carl Albert State College Fine Arts & Communication instructor Shirley Harrod Yandell presented medals to Shady Point Schools’ after-school drama students during their annual awards assembly on May 16th.

Eighteen cast members rehearsed for two months in the after-school program to prepare for the full-length one-act play presented in December.

The play, “The Best Christmas (Whatever) Ever,” is the fourth play written and directed by Yandell for the SPS annual Christmas Program.

According to Yandell, working with the SPS elementary and junior high students is an honor. “These students demonstrate incredible talent and work ethic, as well as a desire for excellence in performance.”

Yandell credits the SPS administration, faculty, and staff for the after-school drama program’s success. “They are the ones who make this possible. They genuinely care about their students and want to afford them an opportunity to excel in the dramatic arts,” she said.
