Our second-place winner is Angel Pean. We have worked with her before, and she is a joy.

Since graduating, she’s been cast in various short films and numerous web series. She placed first in an international monologue competition. She was born and raised in Houston, Texas.

Our third-place winner is Salma Alattore. She is only 15 yet has performed many times locally. Most recently she performed in TORNADO TRAIN by Indigenous-Chicana playwright Linda Amayo-Hassan. We loved TORNADO TRAIN from the Indigenous Playwright Project in 2022 that we brought it back in July 2023 for the One-Act Play Festival.

Thanks to all who attended the event. We look forward to our next one.
