Looking for THS Drama history... next year marks the 100th year of drama at THS, and we are looking to create a digital archive of programs, pictures, cast lists, info about what shows were done in what years, etc... whatever info you may have about your time (or your parent's time) here in the drama department at Texas High. If you would, please take a photo of whatever documents you have that might help us create a more complete picture of the first 100 years, and share it with us. You can email it to me at [email protected] You can also reply to this post if you just have some text-able info. We have a pretty good grip on the shows performed since the Sullivan PAC / John Thomas Theatre opened. Mainly looking for pre-2009 info. Thanks so much!

Tiger Theatre Company is a 2020 Texas Thespian Honor Troupe. During this crazy year, the troupe has come together for numerous community service projects, arts advocacy initiatives, shows and troupe building activities. It hasn't been perfect or smooth; we have had to put some traditions on pause this year, but nothing has held them back or kept them down for long. Thank you to the Troupe Officers and Members and the entire Tiger Theatre Company. As we look forward to 2021, we are ready to continue to lead, grow, advocate, and perform.

Since our kids are being asked to choose between attending school in person and remote learning, is there any insight about whether the Tiger Theatre Company will have options for remote learners to still participate in theater? That's the only part about this that is making us waiver.
I got my tickets for Sunday and I am looking forward to it so much!!!
For over thirty years, Mr. John Thomas (affectionately known as “Mr. T” by his students) served as the Director of Drama at Texas High School. A consummate student of the craft himself, John was a one-man band, providing his students instruction into every facet of the theatre-from history and theory, to technical skills (such as lighting and set design), to makeup and costuming, and of course acting. Whether he was providing gentle, constructive direction to his student actors, keeping them in their place with zinging one-liners when they got too cocky, or gathering his cast in a circle behind the little theatre for the traditional 1-2-3 “BREAK A LEG!”, John was more than just a teacher to most-he was mentor, counselor and a very positive role model. After every production closed its run, John and his wife Linda opened their home to the entire company and hosted a cast party for all involved, regardless of the number. Even after being without her husband’s company for weeks on end during rehearsals, Linda was always happy to share him, for just one more evening. In early Spring of 1981, Mr. T provided THS students as ushers for the very first public theatre performance in the newly renovated Perot Theatre- a practice he continued until 2009 - some 28 years. During this time, John and Linda were also very involved with a community theatre group, known as Texarkana Regional Theatre (TRT), and performed a myriad of tasks in support of that organization. When TexRep (Texarkana Repertory Theatre) was established in the early 90s, once again, John and Linda got involved. The Thomases were amongst the first sustaining members of TexRep and John has frequently been on the other side of the director’s chair as a cast member in many productions through the years, always giving very memorable performances. In addition, John and Linda took on the task of serving as TexRep’s box office, setting up a dedicated phone line in their home, taking reservations and working the ticket booth, a job they performed for many seasons. Most recently, John and Linda are working with the Arkansas Municipal Auditorium Commission, a group dedicated to restoring another historic performance venue in Texarkana. The Arkansas Municipal Auditorium hosted one of the first concerts Elvis Presley ever performed, hosted performances from the jazz age through the 70’s, with countless other legendary musicians gracing the stage in its heyday. Backstage or onstage, John and Linda Thomas have given over 50 years of service to the performing arts here in Texarkana. In honor of John and Linda's lifelong work in and committment to live theatre here in Texarkana, TISD and the Tiger Theatre Booster Club have established the John & Linda Thomas Endowed Scholarship Fund. This Endowment, will help us award a scholarship worthy of the names John and Linda Thomas, and will also provide truly meaningful assistance to a college-bound Theatre major. It is our initial goal to raise $75,000 to establish this Endowment, with plans to make the first award in May, 2018 at the Annual Tiger Theatre Awards Assembly. All contributions are 100% tax-deductible as all gifts will be received and administered through the Texarkana Public Schools Foundation, a 501c3 organization. Please make your gift as soon as possible so that we may count you among our Founding Donors. In order to receive credit for your contribution this year, please remit your gift by December 31, 2017. Please make checks payable to: Texarkana Public Schools Foundation John & Linda Thomas Scholarship Fund ATTN: Ms. Deidra Reeves, TISD Chief Financial Officer 4100 Summerhill Road Texarkana, TX 75503 Credit card payments may be made by contacting Ms. Reeves' office at 903.794.3651. You may even spread your donation over a period of years, if it will make it more comfortable for you to do so. We want to thank the TIGER THEATRE BOOSTERS for their initial contribution of $5000 to help establish this fund, and also, the following individuals for their generous contributions: Ms. Tonia Olsen Dr. Phyllis Abel Deal Mr. Bobby Abel We hope you will please join us in honoring John and Linda with a Scholarship worthy of their names, as well as helping more deserving graduates realize their higher education dreams.
