Zoey Hughes – Award Presented by SSCT President Jen Burke
Every year Sand Springs Community Theatre is honored to present a financial gift award to a CPHS Senior who has been outstanding in the performing arts.
This young woman has impressed me from almost the first moment I met her. She was a 7th grade stand out in a drama class full of shy young middle schoolers. It was a joy to direct her for both Clyde Boyd MIddle School and Sand Springs Community Theatre, where she played my Snoopy in A Charlie Brown Christmas.
In the four years since then, she has also been a stand out on this very stage. I was blown away by her performance in The Drowsy Chaperone, and most recently her powerful portrayal of Violet in 9-5.
She has been a stand out off the stage as well, exhibiting excellent leadership as a director for one act plays and as Co-President for the CPHS Chapter of the Thespian Society.
In addition to being an award winning actor and director, she stands out with a wonderful soul and positive attitude that brightens the lives of anyone who knows her, including mine.
It is my great pleasure to present the 2018 Sand Springs Community Theatre Award to Ms. Zoey Hughes.
(P.S. … I love you and am so proud of you! -Jen Burke)
The Distinguished Merit Award is presented to individuals in recognition of contributions made to promote and develop the highest standards for community theatre.
Andrea Campfield, Sand Springs Oklahoma, is the Sand Springs Community Theatre founder and drama teacher for Charles Page High School. With school funding for drama slashed, she engaged the community to participate financially, helping to continue the production of quality shows. Andrea organizes a summer arts tour that has taken her students overseas to tour theatres and museums and to New York to attend broadway shows. Andrea co-authored and directed a play about inclusion that involved multigenerational actors and incorporated sign-language for which she received national recogniztion from Sertoma International, an organization whose philanthropic efforts assist those with communicative disorders. In a climate that has been hard on the arts, Andrea never backs away from supporting students and the community in teaching the benefits and necessity of arts in our lives.

Community Theatre receives awards at regional contest
The cast of Sand Springs Community Theatre’s production of “Tomato Plant Girl” recently took their show to Louisiana for the American Association of Community Theatre’s Regional contest.
Patty Dixon of Sand Springs Community Theatre said “Tomato Plant Girl” won the distinction of second alternate to nationals, first place for lighting and Jami Shine won best actress for her role as the Tomato Plant Girl.
“We didn’t win the top award, but we won the most awards—three!” Dixon said in an email.
At the first round OCTAfest competition in June of 2016, Jen Burke won Best Actress as Bossy Best Friend.
“Tomato Plant Girl” is a children’s play that tells the story of Little Girl, who’s new in town and makes friends with Bossy Best Friend. They share a garden, but Bossy Best Friend mistreats Little Girl. At one point while Little Girl is tending to a plant, Tomato Plant Girl springs up, the two become friends and Tomato Plant Girl teaches her the true meaning of friendship.
Clyde Boyd Middle School drama teacher Jen Burke played Bossy Best Friend, Brittany Scott played Little Girl and Jami Shine played Tomato Plant Girl. Sidney Hunt served as technical director.
The festival also provided workshops for attendees about quick creation, budgeting and speed networking.
